Oklahoma County District Attorney candidate Kevin Calvey has filed for a recount in Tuesday's primary election.
On Tuesday, Calvey received 26,975 votes (49.97%) while Gayland Gieger garnered 12,548 votes (23.25%). Calvey fell just 30 votes short of avoiding a runoff election.
“As we know all too well, our election process is not above the occasional mistake -- especially machine-counting mistakes,” Kevin Calvey said. “Our campaign is just doing its due diligence to ensure all valid votes were included and counted correctly. We will work with the County Election Board so voters can rest assured this election will be reviewed for 100% accuracy.”
