DENVER – Secretary of State Bernie Buescher has ordered a hand recount in five western Colorado counties where unaffiliated Rep. Kathleen Curry campaigned as a write-in candidate.

Ballots won’t be certified in the three-way race to represent House District 61 until Nov. 26. The district includes Pitkin, Hindale and Gunnison counties, and parts of Eagle and Garfield counties.

After the election Tuesday, Curry had 9,001 votes, trailing the front-runner, Democrat Roger Wilson, by 495 votes. Republican Luke Korkowski had 8,892 votes.

Last week, a judge ordered that 2,001 “undervotes” be inspected. Some voters wrote in Curry’s name but didn’t mark the box next to it. Others didn’t vote at all.
