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.
