After reviewing the results of the certified canvass, 32nd Senate District Republican candidate Dan Kapanke has announced his official request to perform a recount districtwide. Kapanke challenged Democrat Jennifer Shilling for her seat in the Nov. 8 election. After the initial results were canvassed, vote totals revealed that Shilling finished just 56 votes ahead of Kapanke in the race.
His request is “due to the fact that the results were extremely close. A recount will ensure each and every vote that was cast is recorded correctly and fairly,” a campaign spokesman said in a statement Nov. 22.
According to Crawford County Clerk Janet Geisler, the Crawford County Board of Canvassers will meet at the county administration building, to conduct the recount for the 32nd Senate District, on Monday, Nov. 28, Tuesday, Nov. 29, and Wednesday, Nov. 30, at 9 a.m. each day. The recount is expected to take three to six days across the district.
