Clark County’s Circuit Court has set a date and named a commission to recount the votes in the Democratic primary election for Clarksville’s Clerk-Treasurer.
Bob Leuthart edged out Gary Hall in the race to be the Democratic representative in November’s general election by 26 votes, receiving 880 votes to Hall’s 854 votes.
No Republican has been named as a candidate for clerk-treasurer, but the party has until June 30 to select an individual for the general election.
When Hall initially requested the recount he said, “I want to make sure everything is correct. I need to know for sure, otherwise I would wonder about it.”
The recount, with a margin of 26 votes, was not a surprise to Leuthart.
