Olson will not pursue recount


At 2:38pm today (11/9/2017), I called Cedar Rapids mayoral candidate Scott Olson. I informed Mr. Olson that the Linn County Board of Supervisors had certified the city election results and Brad Hart received sixty-eight (68) more votes than Mr. Olson.

I have been updating Mr. Olson on the status of provisional ballots and late arriving absentee ballots since the unofficial election results were posted on Tuesday night.

While talking with Mr. Olson a few minutes ago about the certified results, I advised him that the Linn County Auditor’s Office is unaware of any errors, omissions, or anomalies which could alter the 68 vote difference. Mr. Olson then advised me that he would not be pursuing a recount. Further, Mr. Olson indicated that I could share his decision with the public. –Joel D. Miller – Linn County Auditor
