Fourth District Councilman Jim Glover has officially asked for a recount of the votes in the June 23 municipal election.

Unofficial results of the vote showed Glover losing to challenger Katheryn Shields by just over 100 votes. A vote that close entitles a candidate to ask for a recount.

Jackson County election board officials confirm that Glover has asked the court for a recount.

Director Shawn Kieffer says his office will work with the Clay and Platte County election boards.

He said no firm timeline has been set for the official recount, but it may begin next week or the following week.
