The bill adds a registered elector to the list of people who can request a recount when one is not otherwise required. An interested party or registered elector who requests a recount can also specify that the requested recount be conducted as a manual recount of the voter-verified paper records in the election, in which case, the election official is required to conduct the recount in accordance with that request.
An interested party or registered elector can also request that a recount that is required by law be conducted as a manual recount of the voter-verified paper records. A person making this request must pay for the additional costs, if any, of conducting the recount manually. If the person makes the payment required, the election official must conduct the recount manually.
