A recount will take place next week in a special state House district election where the margin of victory was three votes.
Republican Katie Henke, who lost this week's House District 71 race in Tulsa, sought the recount Friday, the last day to make such a request.
“I owe it to the district, I owe it to my supporters,” Henke said. “Three votes — that's such a small margin. There's always room for error. I think it will be good for everyone's peace of mind.”
The recount is scheduled to start at 9 a.m. Wednesday in the Tulsa County Courthouse. A judge will preside over the recount, which will be conducted by the Tulsa County Election Board.
Henke requested a manual recount instead of running the ballots again through an electronic scanner.
Henke received 1,413 votes in the special election; Democrat Dan Arthrell got 1,416 votes, unofficial returns show.
The margin of victory didn't change Friday after Tulsa County election officials opened six provisional ballots.
Two were for Henke, two were for Arthrell and two were disqualified. The unofficial tally now is 1,418 votes for Arthrell and 1,415 votes for Henke.
Provisional ballots are cast by voters without the required identification; they sign a sworn statement and cast a provisional ballot, which, if it is determined they are registered to vote in that precinct, will be included in the final election tally.
