It certainly could be an honest mistake, but I'm guessing that there is a significant difference, or else it wouldn't be an issue. Do you recount if the difference is just 100? Likely not, when the difference is 1300 votes.
The person elected may end up being the same, but I'm going to guess that the vote count will look significantly different after the recount.
