It looks like there will be an automatic recount for the last seat on the city's board of education.

Democrat Luis Rodriguez-Davila edged out Working Families Party candidate and current board member Sharon Patterson-Stallings by just 17 votes. That small margin of victory has triggered an automatic recount.

Working Families Registrar Urania Petit says that recount is tentatively set for Monday. State law calls for a runoff when the difference between two candidates is less than half of one percent of the total voters for that office. Below is a PDF of the official documents at the clerk's office. The final page shows the automatic recount.
