Republican Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin’s campaign is asking for recanvass of vote totals that show him losing the reelection bid.
Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes received the written recanvass request from Governor Matt Bevin. The request seeks a recanvass of all precincts in all Kentucky counties. Unofficial vote totals currently show Bevin with a 5,189-vote deficit to his opponent, Andy Beshear.
Grimes is forwarding the request to the State Board of Elections and reminding them of the recanvass procedures.
A recanvass is a check of the vote count to ensure the results were added correctly.
County boards of elections will convene on Thursday, November 14th at 9 a.m.to conduct the recanvass. Immediately upon completion of the recanvass, the county boards of elections will file their recanvass reports with the Secretary of State.
