DENVER — The Secretary of State's office released what it would cost five GOP candidates to obtain machine-tabulated recounts tied to the June 28 primary – and the expenses have gone up.

All the candidates will have to provide certified funds to cover the recount costs by close of business Thursday.

Mesa County Clerk and Recorder Tina Peters, who lost the GOP nod for Secretary of State to former Jeffco Clerk and Recorder Pam Anderson, will need to provide certified funds in the amount of $255,912.33.

She and the other four candidates are seeking hand-recounts, which they aren't going to get. The Secretary of State's office told the five candidates the recount would be conducted in the same tabulation methods as the original count, which was done by machine. That election rule has been in place since Scott Gessler served as Secretary of State from 2011 to 2015, according to the elections division.
