GOP Election
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes announced on Thursday that a statewide recanvass of the votes did not change the results of the primary GOP elections.
 
Some minor number additions occurred, which officials believe to be due to absentee voters who were given extensions. Likewise, Daviess, Fayette, Henderson, Jefferson, Kenton, Nelson and Rowan counties, have received an extension until June 1 to certify vote totals to the Secretary of State’s office
 
“I’m grateful to our county boards of elections for their efforts to ensure confidence in the Primary Election results,” said Grimes. “Although there were several minor changes in vote totals, the recanvass did not affect which candidates will become the Republican party’s nominees.”

County-by-county results of both recanvasses are available on the Secretary of State’s website
 
Grimes has called a meeting of the State Board of Elections to certify the results of the May 19 Primary Election. All vote totals will remain unofficial until certified on June 8.
