Eichler/Edwards Recount Slated for Nov. 18

Dust off your hanging chads, because it looks like the race in House District 38 between Republican Kelly Eichler and Democrat John Edwards is headed for a recount, as suggested earlier today. This from an Eichler campaign e-mail received just moments ago:

As of today, the unofficial results for District 38 show the following:

John Edwards – 7,044 votes or 50.26%
Kelly Eichler – 6,970 votes or  49.74%
Under votes: 476
Over votes: 1

With only a 74 vote or .52% margin, the campaign has asked the Pulaski County Election Commission to hold a recount in this election.  Tentatively, that recount is scheduled for November 18 at the County Election Commission.
