CEDAR RAPIDS (AP) -

A recount was scheduled to begin Thursday afternoon in the Cedar Rapids school tax levy election.

Officials said a total of 3,155 ballots at Jefferson and Washington high schools got jammed in the vote scanning machines, possibility because of humidity from the rain on Tuesday.

After the counting Tuesday, there were 32 more votes favoring an increase of the district's physical plant and equipment levy.
