Two Counties Confirm Rogers Win; Palo Pinto County Re-Count Set

Two Counties Confirm Rogers Win; Palo Pinto County Re-Count Set

After “human error” in the May 24 Primary Runoff took the victory margin of incumbent House District 60 Representative Glenn Rogers to just 350 votes, opponent Mike Olcott requested a recount.

That re-count is now complete in two of the three counties. Stephens County was certified last week and now Parker County is complete. Neither county found any discrepancies in the re-count despite the “human error” discovered in Parker County after the election. Original Story Regarding Re-Count

The Republican Party of Texas and Parker County Elections Administration officially certified the recount results of the May 24 Primary Runoff to be a 100% match to the results that were reported on Election Night.

A statement from Representative Rogers praised the integrity and work ethic of Parker County GOP Chair, Scott Utley, and Elections Administrator, Cricket Miller, throughout the weeks long process of sorting, organizing, and tallying over 15,000 ballots.

“For the second time, the recount process has validated the election night results, and showcased that Texas’ elections are fair, free, and secure,” Rogers said. “It is frustrating that there continues to be more wasted time and money thrown at a process to ultimately determine what the voters already knew.”

Palo Pinto County’s recount will take place on Tuesday, June 21.

“Everything in this recount has been done with the transparency, honesty, and attention to detail that the voters deserve,” Rogers stated. “Even in the face of obstructionists and unnecessary distractions, I look forward to a speedy resolution by next week so my office can focus full time on serving the people of Parker, Palo Pinto, and Stephens Counties that we were elected to represent.”
