PRESS RELEASE: Indiana Recount Commission Begins Monroe County
Manual Recount of the Indiana House District 62nd Race

The Indiana Recount Commission and State Board of Accounts have begun the manual recount
of the Indiana House District 62 race between Democrat Penny Githens and Republican Dave
Hall. Chair David G. Henry filed the recount paperwork the morning of November 28th at the
Indiana Election Division in Indianapolis.
The Recount Commission, chaired by Phil Sicuso, began its work in Jackson and Brown
Counties this week. The State Board of Accounts, and observers from the Hall and Githens
campaigns, began observing the manual recount of ballots in Monroe County on Tuesday
The recount is scheduled to begin at 8:30 AM on Wednesday at the Monroe County Election
Central offices at 401 W 7th St Ste 100 in Bloomington. The public and media may observe the
recount, after signing in with the Monroe County Board of Elections and Indiana State Police
onsite. The manual recount could conclude as early as Thursday afternoon, with final tabulations
presented by the Commission in Indianapolis on Tuesday, December 20th.
“While there have been some challenges filed on ballot irregularities in Brown County, and even
the mislocation of paper ballots in a precinct that would have been part of this manual recount
petition, we anticipate a smooth conclusion to this recount here in Monroe County,” said Chair
David G. Henry. “We trust the work of our observers and the State Board of Accounts as they
complete their due diligence under law in this extremely close election.”
