BISMARCK - The state Canvassing Board meets Tuesday afternoon to canvass the certified election results received from the 53 counties, Secretary of State Al Jaeger said today.

The board will then certify the statewide results for president, congressional, state office holders, four measures, legislative races and district judgeships. Any automatic and demand recounts will be noted then.

The District 12 Senate seat, where incumbent Sen. David Nething, R-Jamestown, leads his challenger, John Grabinger, by 12 votes, is the only race in which an automatic recount is set.

Three other legislative seats - in District 6, 12 and 22 -qualify for demand recounts, in which the party that demands a recount agrees to pay the cost of conducting the recount.

The Canvassing Board is Jaeger, state Treasurer Kelly Schmidt; Supreme Court Clerk Penny Miller, and representatives of the Republican and Democratic-NPL parties. Schmidt will be recused during canvassing of the votes for her own election, in which she prevailed.
