On Wednesday, February 17, you received a phone call from Election Specialist Ross Hein regarding the potential for a recount of the Court of Appeals District IV primary election. Based upon our survey of the 24 counties involved, the unofficial results indicate a 182-vote difference between Edward Leineweber and Ramona Gonzalez with a total of 54,036 votes cast. The unofficial results have been posted on our website at:

As you may know by now, Judge Gonzalez has indicated that she will not petition for a recount of the Spring Primary. She advised our office that she has confidence in the work of local and county election officials, and did not wish to have taxpayers incur the additional costs of a recount. We wanted to advise you of this news as we know preparing for a recount would affect your staffing plans in the coming weeks.

Thank you for your prompt responses to our telephone survey, and your willingness to assist with the potential recount. You did an excellent job and we want to commend you for your cooperation.
