What is the threshold for a mandatory recount?
If the difference between the candidate receiving the highest number of votes and the candidate receiving the second-highest number of votes (or yes/no for ballot measures) is less than ½ of 1% of the total votes cast for the candidate with the highest number of votes, there is a mandatory recount.
Candidate A receives 12,738 votes
Candidate B receives 12,541 votes = Difference of 197 Votes
½ of 1% of Candidate A’s total = 12,738 x 0.005 = Difference of 63 Votes
Result: NO Mandatory Recount
Candidate A receives 200 votes
Candidate B receives 199 votes = Difference of 1 Vote
½ of 1% of Candidate A’s total = 200 x 0.005 = Difference of 1 Vote
Result: Mandatory Recount
How long will a recount take?
A mandatory or requested recount must be completed no later than the 15th day after the election, April 20, 2022.
If there is a recount where will it physically take place?
Any recounts will be conducted in the ballot tabulation room at the Police Department and Municipal Court building.
