Kentucky secretary of state will push bill to stop ‘frivolous’ vote recount petitions

At least six losing Republican candidates from Kentucky’s primary election last month have filed petitions in circuit court requesting an official recount of the vote, including two who lost by 36 percentage points and more than 2,000 votes. Kentucky Secretary of State Michael Adams described several of these recount requests as “frivolous,” saying he will support new legislation in the 2023 session to only allow recount requests from candidates who came within 1 percentage point of the winner.
