The new tally was Mangipudi, 191, and Andrade, 146. The original count was Mangipudi, 167, and Andrade, 170.

The ballots were hand-counted last week at the Ward 8 polling site since it was a special primary election and the single race was the only item on the ballot.
Mangipudi, a former member of the Board of Education in Nashua, was not immediately available for comment on Monday. During last week’s election, she told the New Hampshire Union Leader that she was dedicated to winning the vacant House seat.
