Recounts for County Commissioner, 18th Judicial District Attorney races


Two races in the General Election were decided by margins likely small enough to require mandatory statutory recounts. Arapahoe County’s Elections Division will conduct both simultaneously, to be completed no later than Dec. 8, pursuant to the process determined by the Secretary of State.

As of the Nov. 23 Canvass Board, officially certified election results show incumbent County Commissioner Jeff Baker(R) leading challenger Idris Keith(D) by 167 votes (0.40%).The Arapahoe County Clerk has issued a Notice of Recount to the candidates and the public.

The contest in the 18th Judicial District between Democrat Amy Padden and Republican John Kellneralso appears to be within the margin for an automatic recount. This is a multi-county race (the 18th Judicial District encompasses Arapahoe, Douglas, Elbert and Lincoln Counties) and results have not been fully certified by all counties as of Nov. 23. The Colorado Secretary of State’s Office will set the rules for this recount and issue all relevant notices.
