Recount for Superintendent estimated to cost $115,000

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

The Montana Secretary of State's office estimates a recount for the Superintendent of Public Instruction race will cost almost $115,000.

About 2,200 votes separate Democrat Denise Juneau and Republican Sandy Welch.  Juneau won the election by 0.483%, in the margin of an eligible recount.

For that to happen, Welch must request it within 5 days of the state canvass and post a bond to cover all costs.  Officials say Welch can use money from her party or any other source to cover the bond.
