Not many of you have been predicting a Murray-Rossi recount in our bragging rights / election prediction thread, but since our race for U.S. Senate involves this guy, you might as well bone up on the rules. Here they are, via Secretary of State spokesperson David Ammons:
For a statewide office, such as Senate or Supreme Court or ballot measures, a machine recount is triggered automatically when the final tally shows the two sides less than 2,000 votes apart and less than one-half of one percentage point apart. Manual recount if it’s under 1,000 votes apart and the difference in the total votes cast for both sides is less than one-quarter of the total votes cast.
Got it? If not, don't worry. We'll do the relevant math, if need be, during our Four Loko—Powered™ Live Coverage on Slog.
