Election Recanvasses Set For Friday

Numerous county clerks across Kentucky tomorrow will be rechecking vote totals from last Tuesday’s election.  Losing candidates in a congressional race, three legislative races and three judicial races want the vote totals re-examined for accuracy.  Les Fugate says the tallies should come in fairly quickly. “All we will do is tabulate everything together from each county and then make those results available.  Those results will eventually go to the State Board of Elections to be certified.  That meeting is currently scheduled for the Monday before Thanksgiving,” he said. In the most closely watched race, Republican Andy Barr wants a recheck of the vote totals in the 6th Congressional District.  Democratic Congressman Ben Chandler declared victory on election night, but the margin of victory was only 649 votes.  More than 239-thousand votes were cast in the district, which covers 16 central Kentucky counties.
