Recount of House District 55 Race Doesn’t Change Outcome

A recount for the Iowa House District 55 race has wrapped up – and the results have not changed the outcome of the elections.

Republican Michael Bergan actually increased his margin of victory from seven votes to nine votes over Democrat Kayla Koether, bringing the final total to 6,924 for Bergan and 6,915 for Koether.

Bipartisan three-member boards conducted the vote recount in Clayton and Winneshiek counties after a request from Koether.

The official State Canvass to certify the General Election results is scheduled for Monday.
