A supervised recount of the Nov. 3 University Heights city election found no changes in voting results, officials announced Monday.

Johnson County Auditor Tom Slockett ordered a recount of the election after the race left two City Council candidates — Amy Moore and Stan Laverman — in a tie, both garnering 206 votes, according to the auditor’s website.

Johnson County Supervisor Pat Harney said no candidate requested the recount, noting it is standard procedure for the office to look into close elections.

Members on the special ballot board reviewed the votes under the supervision of the Johnson County Board of Supervisors.

University Heights had a record-breaking voter turnout this year, according to the Auditor’s Office. A total of 414 people voted in the election, 52 percent of the city’s population.

The three other candidates voted onto the council include Michael Haverkamp, Patricia Yeggy, and Brennan McGrath.
