There are many factors dictating what a recount will look like—vote margin, hand or machine count, and other state laws guiding the process. Every state has different rules and timelines for their recounts. It’s important to remember that recounts almost never flip the results of the election.
While signature matching laws and other forms of discarding eligible ballots need to be reformed, many states provide a way for voters to correct their ballot and still have it count. This is called the cure process.
