Recall Q&a

How close does the recall election have to be to force a recount?

October 06, 2003|Allison Hoffman

In California, there is no law that automatically requires a complete recount if election results are close. But any voter can request a county-by-county recount within five days after the counting process is completed. Each county sets a price for a recount, which, in large counties like Los Angeles, could cost tens of thousands of dollars or more. A grand jury can demand a recount if the panel suspects that faulty voting equipment affected the outcome of the election.
