SOUTH AMBOY - A judge in South Amboy has ordered a recount after the heavily disputed mayoral race came down to a single vote.

The original count gave Fred Henry, Jr. the victory over Mary O'Connor.

Elections officials say a mail-in ballot was thrown out because it wasn't sent in properly.

Three Middlesex County election commissioners will be on-hand for the recount, which is scheduled to take place Friday at 1:30 p.m.
