EASTON, Conn. -- A dispute over write-in votes for first selectman in Easton has led to a lawsuit against the town by Val Buckley, according to a Patch report.

Candidates are arguing for a recount because of small difference in votes between the write-in candidate and the declared winner, Republican Adam Dunsby. (Read about the counting of ballots on Election Night in Easton here in The Daily Voice.)

Buckley is also suing because she says nearly 250 votes for write-in candidates were not counted because voters did not fill in the bubble on the voter sheet and only wrote in their preference of candidate, according to the article.

The Easton registrar of voters defends the outcome.
