The recount of an Indiana House of Representatives primary election that was separated by six votes began Monday in Marion County.
Election results certified following the May 3 Republican primary election for Indiana House District 32 showed that Fred Glynn of Carmel received 1,844 votes to 1,838 votes for Suzie Jaworowski of Fishers. Paul Nix of Fishers received 479 votes.
Jaworowski requested a recount of the election on May 17.
She told IBJ on Monday that there was no change in the result following the recount in Marion County. A recount in Hamilton County is scheduled to begin Tuesday that is expected to last at least two days, according to a spokesperson with the Indiana Secretary of State’s office.
The newly drawn District 32 covers Hamilton County’s Clay and Delaware townships and extends south into Marion County.
The winner of the Republican primary is expected to face Democrat Victoria Garcia Wilburn in the November general election.
The State Recount Commission is handling the District 32 recount as the commission is in charge of federal, statewide and state legislative office recounts.
The candidate requesting a recount has to cover the cost, according to the manual. The petitioner has to pay the civil case-filing fee and file a bond or cash deposit of at least $100 with the court to cover costs of the recount.
The court sets the total cost, which can be determined based on the number of precincts that need to be counted and also whether the candidate lost by more or less than 1%, according to the manual.
If the recount alters the original results of the election, the candidate filing the petition would be refunded.
