According to WILX-TV 10, Ingham was the first county to start recounting presidential ballots on Monday, finishing the day with about a fourth of precincts counted.

County Clerk Barb Byrum is aiming to finish recounting the more than 130,000 ballots within 6 days.  Her staff started counting Monday at noon at the Ingham County Fairgrounds.

She has 30 teams of two counters, one democrat one republican.  Each team is given a precinct then they start with a check list to make sure those ballots can be recounted.  Byrum estimates the recount will cost taxpayers around $34,000 dollars.
