Group Wants Recount Of Eastern Idaho Town's Non-Discrimination Vote

A group opposed to Pocatello's non-discrimination ordinance retained by voters last month is seeking a recount.

Bannock County election officials tell the Idaho State Journal that Vote Yes Pocatello made the request Monday.

The group wants a recount in 20 of Pocatello's 39 precincts from the May 20 vote, as well as a recount of early and absentee votes.

The city of Pocatello in June 2013 passed an ordinance banning discrimination against a person because of sexual orientation or gender identity.

Proposition One asked city residents whether to keep the law or repeal it.

Officials say that 4,943 people voted to keep the law in place, while 4,863 people voted to rescind it.

Vote Yes Pocatello says the ordinance penalizes people for their personal beliefs.
