The Kentucky Democratic Primary Isn't Over, Yet

More
The race to run against Rand Paul isn't over, quite yet.

As reported by Politico, Lt. Gov. Daniel Mongiardo will request a "recanvass" of absentee ballots and voting machines in Kentucky's Democratic Senate primary.


Jack Conway, the state attorney general, leads Mongiardo by 3,592 votes according to Kentucky's unofficial results, with all counties reporting.

25% of Kentucky polling places use electronic voting machines that directly record votes. A variety of machines are used, most commonly eSlate, followed by iVotronic and AccuTouch.

3,592 votes isn't a huge margin, so what happens if the recanvass nudges Mongiardo just a touch closer? According to Kentucky law, candidates have 30 10 days to petition a court for a full recount. There are no automatic recounts based on margin, under Kentucky law, according to the KY secretary of state's office.
