Providence Elections Commission Closes Books On Local Election Day

The Rhode Island Board of Elections is ruling on a couple of recount requests from last week's primaries.

Two close Providence City Council races were officially called for the original winners on Monday: Susan Anderbois won the Democratic race for the seat in the third ward, which was vacated by Nirva LaFortune when she ran for mayor.

The Democratic primary for Ward 12 was confirmed for Althea Graves.

Both Anderbois and Graves will face independent candidates in November.

The state election board said the two Providence council races were the only ones that qualified for a recount out of a total of nine requests.
