The results of last week's primary election for the Maplewood City Council will stand.

A canvassing board met Wednesday morning at Maplewood City Hall to recount ballots after a candidate who lost by seven votes requested the review.

It took 90 minutes for six election judges -- four from Maplewood and two from Ramsey County -- to determine that Rebecca Cave received 472 votes and Elizabeth Sletten got 463, said City Clerk Karen Guilfoile.

Sletten asked for a recount after original results showed a seven-vote margin of 470 for Cave and 463 for Sletten. Cave picked up two additional votes in the recount.

Cave is one of four candidates who will appear on the ballot in November. She will be up against incumbents John Nephew and Marvin Koppen, along with challenger Bob Cardinal, a former Maplewood mayor.

Sletten said she plans to run a write-in campaign for one of two open seats. The winners in the Nov. 8 election will serve four-year terms.
