   The former mayor of Caseyville, Illinois wants the ballots from the April election recounted.  That's because George Chance lost his reelection bid by only four votes -- after 27 years in office.  

   Chance was entitled to a discovery examination of 25% of the ballots.  That took place Monday.  Chance says he's already found one vote that was miscounted, so he plans to ask a judge to have all of the ballots tallied again.

   The new mayor, Leonard Black has already taken office, but says he can't blame Chance for wanting a full recount.  

   Mayor Black told Fox 2 News that he'd probably do the same thing if he'd lost by such a narrow margin.  "I probably would," he said. "I don't hold that against Mr. Chance.  I would do the same thing. I mean it's close enough that it's reasonable."

   The final vote count was 576-to-572.
