Recount Triggered by Tight Congressional District 4 Dem Race Pinal County to Conduct Logic & Accuracy Test Wednesday at 2 PM

FLORENCE – For those who wonder if their vote really counts, wonder no more.  The Congressional District 4 Democrat race was so close on a district-wide level that an automatic re-count was triggered.  According to unofficial results on the Secretary of State’s website, Johnnie Robinson garnered 10,185 votes in the democrat race for Congressional District 4 and Mikel Weisser garnered 10,166 votes – a difference of only 19 votes.

 

“Arizona elections laws dictate instances when you have to do a re-count and prescribes the method by which ballots are recounted,” said Steve Kizer, Pinal County Elections Director.  “Before recounting the ballots, we must conduct a logic and accuracy test on our ballot-counting machines.”

 

Logic and Accuracy tests are performed on all machines prior to an election.  When ballots need to be re-counted, the test must be performed again on any machines that will be used to tally the votes a second time.  The tests are performed at the Elections office and the testing is public, meaning that anyone may stop in to observe.

 

The Logic and Accuracy test for the ballot-counting machines that will be used to tally the recount results will take place at 2:00 PM on Wednesday, September 12, 2012.

 

After the test, the democrat ballots cast in the race for Congressional District 4 will be re-counted and results will be submitted to the Arizona Secretary of State’s office in Phoenix.  The other counties whose residents voted in the Congressional District 4 race will also be re-counting ballots and reporting results to the Secretary of State.
