North Dakota Primary Recount for Secretary of State Doesn’t Change Results for Libertarian

Ballot Access News

On September 4, the North Dakota recount for the June primary, for Secretary of State, was completed. Roland Riemers had sought the recount because the law required him to poll 300 votes, and the original count showed him with only 247. The recount only netted him one more vote. See this story

Riemers asked the state to also include votes for him, for voters who voted for him and no one else for Secretary of State, but who also cast votes in the Democratic or Republican primaries for other offices. This is physically possible because the three party primary ballots are all on the same piece of paper. But the state refused to count those votes.
