How on earth were they off by this much? There were only 481 ballots to count!
In the latest Thunderchild election, Dale Awasis was originally declared the new chief, having won with 251 votes compared to the 242 cast for Wapass.
"There was a request for a recount by three individuals," said Thunderchild First Nation chief electoral officer Cheryl Wapass.
After the recount, Wapass' vote-count remained at 242 while Awasis' number dropped to 239.
