ND board says recount possible in state House race

BISMARCK — The results of North Dakota's November elections are official, and a recount is possible in a race for the state Legislature.

Democratic House candidate Sharon Buhr finished 50 votes behind Republican Dwight Kiefer in the race for a House seat in District 24.

The district includes Barnes County and parts of Ransom and Cass counties in southeastern North Dakota.

Buhr couldn't be reached immediately for comment Friday. She has until Monday to ask for a recount.

North Dakota's Canvassing Board took less than an hour Friday to certify the final election results.

The closest statewide race was for the U.S. Senate. Democrat Heidi Heitkamp beat Republican Rick Berg by 2,936 votes. Berg says he won't ask for a recount.
