It is vital that election results are absolutely correct and reflect the will of the people,” Secretary Sullivan said. “The recount process is another step Indiana takes to protect electoral integrity and maintain confidence for voters and candidates.”

The race for the Republican nomination in the race came down to a close finish on May 3. Only six votes separated Jaworowski from the winner, Fred Glynn.
