Recanvass of Kentucky primary elections results to be held Thursday morning

A recanvass of votes from the Kentucky Republican primaries for governor and agriculture commissioner will be held Thursday morning.

Local 6 spoke with the Graves County Clerk to found out how the recanvass will work. Here is what you need to know:
– Tapes from each voting precinct will be compared to an overall county spreadsheet.
– The recanvass will start at 9:00 a.m. and take no more than 45 minutes.
– There is no cost for the county.
– The recanvass is not a recount.

Each county is checking to see if their totals match what was sent to the state Broad of Elections.

Once the results are in, Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes will post the results online.

Republican Kentucky Governor candidate James Comer and Richard Heath, a Republican candidate for Agriculture Commissioner, both submitted recanvass requests.
