    Missouri recount likely

    Missouri recount likely

    What's going on in Missouri?

    Washington (CNN)With vote counting in Missouri completed for Tuesday night, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump lead their respective party primaries there by less than half a percentage point. Since the margin of victory in each case is less than 1 percentage point, CNN will not project a winner in either contest.


    5 takeaways from Super Tuesday 3
    Stephanie Fleming, a spokeswoman for the Missouri secretary of state's office, told CNN that 100% of precincts have reported, but some absentee and provisional ballots remain uncounted. These ballots will be counted in the coming days. Overseas absentee ballots will be accepted until Friday at noon. The secretary of state's office could not say how many uncounted ballots remain.

    The recount law in Missouri allows a second-place finisher to request a recount if the margin of victory is less than half a percentage point. As the count stands now, both margins of victory are small enough that Bernie Sanders or Ted Cruz would be able to request a recount to verify the findings, if they choose to do so.


    Early Wednesday morning, Cruz's campaign manager told CNN's Sunlen Serfaty that at this time the Cruz campaign has "no plans" to request a recount.


    As of 2 a.m., the vote count in the Democratic race is:

    Clinton: 310,602 votes, 49.6%
    Sanders: 309,071 votes, 49.4%

    The vote count in the Republican race at this time is:

    Trump: 382,093 votes, 40.8%
    Cruz: 380,367 votes, 40.6%
    John Kasich: 94,533 votes, 10.1%
    Marco Rubio: 57,006 votes, 6.1%

    As of now, CNN has allocated the following delegates in Missouri:

    Democrats:
    Clinton: 34
    Sanders: 34

    Unallocated pending further results: 3

    Republicans:
    Trump: 20
    Cruz: 5

    Unallocated pending further results: 27

    Kasich and Rubio are not expected to win any delegates in Missouri.

    Potential Missouri recount process could take months




    Republican Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton appear to have won the popular vote in Missouri's presidential primary—just barely.

    The horse race finish means a potential recount that could take several months, state officials said.


    Stephanie Fleming, the communications director of the Missouri Secretary of State, said a recount is not automatic.


    A candidate who lost by less than one-half of one-percent must request a recount in writing, Fleming said. That can only occur after the state's vote is certified, an official process that could stretch into April.


    "It's not going to be over soon if there is a request for a recount," Fleming said.


    Currently, defeated Missouri candidates Ted Cruz and Bernie Sanders fit that requirement. Cruz trails Trump by about one-fifth of one-percent, while Sanders trails Clinton by a quarter of one percent.


    Both Sanders and Cruz campaigns haven't responded to questions about whether they'll seek a recount.


    Because the results are so close, it remains unclear if a recount would change anything. Presidential primaries are about delegates, not popular vote.


    At stake:


    Republicans (52 delegates)

    Missouri is a winner take all state for Republicans only if a candidate wins more than 50 percent of the total vote. That didn't happen on Tuesday, so a more complicated process is triggered.


    With Trump netting about 40.8 percent, and Cruz netting about 40.6 percent, Republicans will now allocate the state's 52 delegates proportionally.


    Trump will get 12 delegates for netting the most votes. The rest of the delegates will be awarded by whoever has the highest vote total in Missouri's eight congressional districts. Five delegates per district are awarded.


    The congressional boundaries mean the vote margins could be more slim than the statewide results.


    Democrats (71 delegates)


    The Democrats have a different process.


    Forty-seven of the 71 will be divided based on their showings in the eight House districts. The remaining 24 will be allotted based on their percentage of the statewide vote.


    In addition, Missouri has 13 so-called superdelegates, elected officials and party leaders who can pledge their vote regardless of the primary results. Twelve of Missouri's superdelegates have already endorsed Clinton.

    Sanders concedes Missouri Democratic primary; Clinton completes Tuesday sweep

    Bernie Sanders said Thursday he will not seek a recount of results in Missouri's Democratic presidential primary, conceding defeat to Hillary Clinton.

    "I think it's unlikely the results will impact at all the number of delegates the candidate gets and I would prefer to save the taxpayers of Missouri some money," Sanders said in an interview with The Associated Press.


    "Whether we win by 200 votes or lose by 500, it's not going to impact the delegate selection," the Vermont senator added. "It's going to be evenly divided."


    Clinton ended Tuesday night with a narrow lead of 1,531 votes, but under state law, Sanders could have sought a recount because the margin was less than one-half of one percent.


    Clinton will get an extra two delegates from Missouri for winning the statewide vote.

    The win in Missouri means Clinton won all five of Tuesday's Democratic primary contests. She also beat Sanders in Florida, Ohio, Illinois and North Carolina.

    The Republican race in Missouri remains too close to call between Donald Trump and Ted Cruz.

    Recount Could Be Possible for Missouri Republican Primary After Results Are Certified


    Updated: Mar 23, 2016 1:48 PM PDT
    By Diane Gerstenfeld



    It's possible the close March 15th Republican Presidential Primary race in Missouri could lead to a recount.

    Bernie Sanders has already said he won't seek a recount for his narrow defeat by Hillary Clinton (even though he may be eligible.) However the option could still be open for Ted Cruz, who by initial totals was defeated by Donald Trump by less than 2,000 votes. Both party's results have yet to be certified by the Missouri Secretary of State's Office, a process that could take about three more weeks.


    Missouri Secretary of State’s Communication Director Stephanie Fleming "The local election authorities have time that they have to certify their results within their jurisdictions and then they transmit those results to us. And once our office has received all of the certification packets from the local election authorities then we have our certification process."


    Because Ted Cruz lost by less than one half of 1% he is eligible to file a recount request once votes are certified, and has seven days to do so.

    Fleming says recounts are not uncommon and are conducted on the local level. The most recent one was in August of 2014 Constitutional Amendment 1, the “Right to Farm.”

    Missouri GOP Primary Election Results to Be Certified ‘Roughly Around Tax Day’

    Although GOP frontrunner Donald Trump inched out
    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)
    in the Missouri GOP primary last week, the election results have yet to be certified.

    An official from the Missouri Secretary of State’s office told Breitbart News that under state statute, Missouri has four weeks from the election date to certify the results after receiving the election packets from local districts.

    Breitbart News learned the results should be certified “roughly around tax day,” which is about three weeks away on April 15th.


    If Trump defeats Cruz by less than .5 percent, Cruz will then have seven days to formally request a recount once the results have officially been certified.


    According to CBS News, Missouri allocated 37 delegates to Trump and 15 delegates to Cruz based on the unofficial election results.


    Executive director for the Missouri GOP Jonathon Prouty explained, “The MO GOP has released our tentative delegate allocation tally, but it will not be final until certification of the election results by the SOS.”
