BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota’s vote canvassing board has met to certify the results of Nov. 8 election, including a legislative contest that was close enough to force an automatic recount. The mandatory recount for a House seat in District 43 in Grand Forks County will not change the balance of power in the chamber. In unofficial returns, incumbent Rep. Zach Ista defeated fellow Democrat incumbent Mary Adams by three votes, 1,717 to 1,714 for the district’s second House seat. Republican Eric Murphy got the most votes, with 1,759 votes. The ballots will go back to the district for a recount next week.
