BC-US–Election 2019-Kentucky-Governor, ADVISORY, US

EDITORS:

The race for governor in Kentucky between incumbent GOP Gov. Matt Bevin and Democratic challenger Andy Beshear is too close to call.

With 100 percent of precincts reporting, Beshear has a lead of 5,150 votes out of more than 1.4 million counted, or a margin of less than 0.4 percentage points.

There is no mandatory recount law in Kentucky. Bevin may request counties recanvass their results, which is not a recount, but rather a check of the vote count to ensure the results were added correctly.

Bevin would need to seek and win a court’s approval for a recount, the process for which would be dictated by the court.
