Recount Confirms Shields Victory Over Glover In Kansas City Council Race

The Kansas City, Missouri Election Board has completed its recount of ballots in the recent 4th district at-large city council race, and the results have not changed.

The recount found that former Jackson County Executive Katheryn Shields defeated incumbent Jim Glover by 173 votes. A total of almost 33,000 ballots were cast in the race citywide. 

Glover had requested the recount when the first count showed that he had lost by less than one percent of the total vote. The first count had him losing by 132 votes.
