Friday Deadline For Recount In Governor Election

CHARLESTON, W.V. (AP) - The candidates in last week's gubernatorial election have one more day to ask for a recount.

The Secretary of State's Office says all 55 counties finished canvassing Wednesday. State law allows candidates 48 hours after that is finished to ask for a recount before the election results are certified.

Candidates have until 3:05 p.m. Friday to request a recount of any precinct, providing that the candidate posts the required bond amount to pay for the requested recount.

Unofficial results show Democrat Earl Ray Tomblin beating Republican Bill Maloney by about 8,000 votes.

Election results are available on the Secretary of State's website at
