Election integrity matters: Recount elevates Gericke to fusion candidate

On Tuesday, I attended a recount at the State Archives in Concord on the Libertarian Party primary ballot after it became clear that someone, somewhere had failed to tally the write-ins for Manchester Ward 11 correctly. I am humbled by the support shown by Libertarian voters who wrote me in,
