Fiscal Detail and Notes
This bill expands the recounts that will be done in stages to all state and county elections comprising more than one municipality, ward or precinct.  This provision could expand the deposits received from candidates requesting recounts and potentially, if the recount does not change the outcome, the amount recovered for the full cost of the recount if that amount exceeds the deposit.  Any additional revenue received from recounts is expected to be minor, not requiring any change to the budget.
