Recounts are scheduled to take place next week for three House races in Vermont.

In the Windsor-Orange 1 district in Royalton and Tunbridge, Republican David Ainsworth asked for a recount after Election Day results showed  him trailing Rep. Sarah Buxton (D-Tunbridge) by three votes. That recount will start at 9 a.m. Monday at the Windsor County Courthouse in Woodstock.

In the Orange 1 district that includes the towns of Chelsea, Corinth, Orange, Vershire, Washington and Williamstown, Rep. Susan Hatch Davis (P-Washington) is seeking a recount after results indicated she is trailing Republican Robert Frenier by eight votes. That recount will be held at 12:30 p.m. Monday at the  Orange County Courthouse in Chelsea.

In the Franklin 7 district that includes Enosburgh and Montgomery, Rep. Larry Fiske (R-Enosburgh) is seeking a recount based on results that show him trailing Progressive Cindy Weed by 15 votes. That recount will be done at 9 a.m. at state Superior Court in St. Albans.

One Senate recount will be held, but not until December 13 at state Superior Court in Montpelier. Sen. Bill Doyle (R-Washington), a 48-year member,  sought a review of the ballots. Officials results show Doyle trailing Democrat Francis Brooks by 191 votes.
