Montana Getting Close, But Looking Good

November 8th, 2006

With 99% of all districts reporting in, Tester still leads Burns, but only by a slim margin: 48.92%-48.51%, with Tester leading by only 1,586 votes. In Montana, if the vote between two candidates is closer than 0.25%, a free recount can be asked for; if the vote is within a half percent (as it stands now), a party can request a recount, but must pay for it if the recount shows he indeed lost. It is also of note that Montana requires paper ballots, so no electronic skullduggery is possible here.

But with 99% of precincts reporting, it is looking better for Tester, as only a few thousand votes are left to count.
