A local politicians say he's going to ask for a recanvass of the vote.
Nearly 20 year democrat incumbent Senator Joey Pendleton lost to republican newcomer Whitney Westerfield in the Kentucky 3rd senate district race by less than 300 hundred votes.
The district is made up of Logan, Todd, and Christian counties.
Westerfield said he understands and if he had lost the election by this small of a margin, he would probably ask for one too.
A recanvass is a retabulation of totals from each voting machine.
If a recanvass is conducted and Pendleton still believes there was an error or problem with the vote totals, he can petition for a recount.
