INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana Secretary of State Holli Sullivan confirmed Tuesday that a request was filed for a recount in the Republican primary race for House District 32. Candidate Suzie Jaworoski requested the recount in her race against Fred Glynn and Paul Nix.

Under Indiana law, a candidate has until noon 14 days from Election Day to file a request for recount with the Indiana Election Division.

“Elections are the bedrock for representation of the people in our Democracy. It is vital that election results are absolutely correct and reflect the will of the people,” Secretary Sullivan said. “The recount process is another step Indiana takes to protect electoral integrity and maintain confidence for voters and candidates.”

The State Recount Commission, chaired by Secretary Sullivan, is responsible for conducted the recount for federal, statewide and state legislative offices. The commission is comprised of two other members, designated by each major political party’s state chair.

The recount team will perform a manual recount of each vote cast and identify any disputed ballots. At a public meeting of the State Recount Commission, representatives from each candidate involved will have the opportunity to argue the validity of any disputed votes. The commission will make a final determination of the vote tally in the race.
