ROCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire city that voted to approve the electronic bingo game keno by one vote expects to conduct a recount next week.

The Nov. 7 ballot question for Rochester and other cities was whether to allow keno sales in state-licensed bars and restaurants. Money would be raised to help fund full-day kindergarten.

Rochester voters approved the measure 1,036-1,035. City Manager Daniel Fitzpatrick says the city has so far received at least 13 written requests for a recount, and is anticipating receiving a petition signed by enough voters to require one.

The city tentatively plans to conduct a recount on Wednesday, Nov. 22, in the City Council Chambers.

Eight of the state’s 13 cities have approved keno.
