Okla. Court to Review Special Election Recount (Apr 17, 2012)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Oklahoma Supreme Court has agreed to review a recount that overturned the results in a special election for a state House seat from Tulsa.

Initial returns from the April 3 election showed Democrat Dan Arthrell three votes ahead of Republican Katie Henke. Henke requested a manual recount that found she won by one vote.

The court on Tuesday issued a stay to prevent any action on the recount after two ballots for Arthrell were found shortly after the Tulsa County Election Board certified Henke as the winner.

State Election Board Secretary Paul Ziriax says the serial numbers on the found ballots match serial numbers of ballots counted by the machine during the election.

Henke's attorney questions why the ballots were not found until after the recount.
