CONCORD, N.H. (AP) – Recounts get under way this week in some of the closest New Hampshire races decided by last week’s elections.

By the end of the week, Secretary of State Bill Gardner’s had received 18 requests for recounts.

One of them came from Republican Rep. Ken Weyler of Kingston, whose total fell 28 short of what he needed to win an 11th term. Rep. Arthur Jillette, D-Goshen, who won a second term by just one vote two years ago, is also headed for a recount after falling 47 votes short this time.

In Senate District 3, Democrat Bud Martin of Sandwich has requested a recount of votes that showed him losing to Republican William Denley of Wakefield by 526 votes.
