Ky. Secretary of State's office to post gubernatorial recanvass results online

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – On Thursday morning, all 120 Kentucky counties will recanvass the results of the republican primary for governor.

Matt Bevin won the election by 83 votes, but results have not been made official as James Comer has requested the recanvass.

Secretary of State Alison Grimes says her office will be putting all the results online.

“Transparency is an important element of ensuring confidence and integrity in our elections,” said Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes. “My office is committed to providing information as quickly as possible, and we'll make the results available online.”

Upon completing the recanvass, the county boards of elections will fax the results to the Secretary of State's office to be made available on the website.

County boards of elections were required to notify each candidate of the time and location of the recanvass in their respective counties.

According to Grimes' office, each candidate and both political parties are entitled to have a representative present for the recanvass in each location where a recanvass will be taking place.

Daviess, Fayette, Henderson, Jefferson, Kenton, Nelson and Rowan counties all received an extension until June 1 to certify vote totals to the Secretary of State's office.

The results of the recanvass will become the official returns of the county. All vote totals remain unofficial until the State Board of Elections certifies the results of the Primary Election.
