The Iowa Secretary of State’s office announced that the requested recounts by Democrats in Iowa House Districts 55 and 82 have been completed and that they did not change the results of either race.

A bipartisan three-member board recounted votes by hand in Jefferson County for the House District 82 race. Republican Jeff Shipley garnered nine additional votes in the recount. State Representative Phil Miller (D-Fairfield), who requested the recount, picked up six additional votes. Shipley’s margin of victory increased, bringing the final total to 6,120 for Shipley and 6,083 for Miller.

Bipartisan three-member boards also conducted vote recounts in Clayton and Winneshiek counties for the House District 55 race. State Representative Michael Bergan (R-Dorchester) increased his margin of victory to nine votes over Democrat Kayla Koether, bringing the final total to 6,924 for Bergan and 6,915 for Koether.

Heading into the 88th General Assembly, Iowa House Republicans hold a 54 to 46 seat majority. The State Canvass is expected to certify the results for the 2018 General Election on December 3rd.
