Alaska: Democrat who lost Alaska House race recount plans appeal | Peninsula Clarion

Kathryn Dodge said she disagreed with decisions the Division of Elections made on some ballots and will file required paperwork with the Alaska Supreme Court. A recount, held Friday in the Fairbanks race, showed Republican Bart LeBon winning by one vote.
