Riemers picks up 1 additional vote in recount


The recount of the June 12 primary votes cast for Libertarian candidate Roland Riemers has been completed.

The Secretary of State candidate picked up 1 additional vote, cast in Burleigh County.

That raises Riemers’ vote tally in June from 247 to 248 — still short of the 300 needed to be listed on the November election  ballot.

Riemers asked for a recount after the primary, which was turned down by the Secretary of State’s office.

Riemers then appealed to the North Dakota Supreme Court, which granted Rimers’ request for a recount.

The State Canvassing Board will meet September 4 to certify the results of the recount.
