Cody Woman, Nina Webber, has requested a recount of the votes for the Republican House District #24. The votes were very close in the August 16th primary election race, where Nina Webber got 1,727 votes, and Sandy Newsome is reported to have received 1,810 votes which is only an 83 vote spread between the two candidates.
Nina Webber waited until the race had been certified by the canvassing board of Wyoming. According to the Park County Elections Office, once the request is made, they have only 72 hours to complete the request in full. The race for House District #24 is the only race that a recount was requested, and since that district received only about 3,7474 ballots that were actually cast, it will not take long to complete the recount.
Nina Webber waits, as do all the Park County voters to see if the votes were counted correctly. Counting starts Monday at 9:00 A.M. and should be completed by 12:00 noon.
