Recount deadline 5 p.m. today

The deadline to request a recount in Nevada County’s closely contested District 3 Supervisor’s race comes and goes today at 5 p.m.

Final election results certified by the Elections Office last Tuesday tabbed challenger Drew Bedwell over incumbent Bruce Conklin by 19 votes.

Any voter or candidate has five working days to request a recount once an election is certified.

Whoever calls for a recount must pay for Elections Office staffing costs, which run about $1,000 a day.

If the recount reverses the final results, the person making the request gets their money back. The final results will stand as official unless overturned by a recount.
