State Rep. That Lost By One Vote Petitioning State House for Recount

After losing his re-election campaign by one vote, a Republican lawmaker in Kentucky has asked the GOP-controlled state House of Representatives for a recount to make sure the result is “100 percent accurate.”

Kentucky state Rep. DJ Johnson lost to Democrat Jim Glenn on Election Day by one vote in House District 13.

County officials reviewed the totals one week later and made no changes. The state Board of Elections certified the results last week.

Johnson’s challenge says six votes should be thrown out because the people who voted did not sign precinct voter rosters.
