Recounts Are Coming In IA-02. Here's What The Process Looks Like.


Lucas County Auditor Julie Masters had a simple message when asked if she had any advice for Iowa’s election officials as they brace for recounts in Iowa’s 2nd Congressional District: “Pray, keep the faith.”

Last Thursday, Masters oversaw a machine recount of the 4,648 ballots cast during the 2020 general election cycle in the Southern Iowa county. The administrative recount was requested Tuesday by Secretary of State Paul Pate due to a precinct-level reporting error discovered this week when the auditor’s office was preparing to canvass, and because of the incredibly close race for Congress between Democrat Rita Hart and Republican Mariannette Miller-Meeks.

On Thursday morning, before election workers in Lucas County fired up the vote-counting machines, Hart’s campaign announced it will file for a “complete recount” of precincts in the district’s 24 counties, which entailed delivering written filings to each of the counties by 5 p.m. Friday.

As of Friday afternoon, of the 394,383 votes cast in the 2nd District race, Miller-Meeks led Hart by 47 votes.
