County clerks and Bureau of election staffers in Bernalillo and Sandoval Counties began overseeing a recount in the House District 23 race ordered by Secretary of State Dianna Duran.

The district straddles portions of Bernalillo and Sandoval Counties.

The official state canvass board results from the Nov. 6 general election showed Republican Paul Pacheco with 6,918 votes to Democrat Marci Blaze’s 6,852 votes.

State law requires an automatic recount if the margin between the two candidates is less than one half of one percent of the votes cast.

A recount is also underway in Dona Ana County for the House District 37 race between Democrat Joanne Ferrary and Republican Terry McMillan.
