CLEVELAND: The Cuyahoga County Board of Elections has concluded the ballot recounts of four tied candidate races and two automatic recounts of issues from the May 8th, 2018 Primary Election.  The recounts did not change the outcome of the official results.


On Tuesday, May 29th the Board of Elections certified the election results and then flipped a coin to determine the winners of the four tied candidate races. The tied contests were then subject to automatic recounts to confirm the results. There were also two ballot issues that were subject to recounts.       


The recount totals matched the official results so the winners who were determined by the coin flips will not change.  “This reaffirms confidence and accuracy of our voting system as well as the methods we utilize to administer elections,” said Pat McDonald the Director of the Board of Elections.   


The largest candidate recount was in the race for Republican State Central Committee, Senate District 23 (woman).  Candidates Doris Durica and Candice Miller both received 5,128 votes.  The recount included 843 ballots that were hand counted. Candice Miller won the seat by a coin flip.
