There will be a recount for North Dakota's District 43 house seat.

That's after a Grand Forks county canvassing meeting Monday.

Curt Kreun was the top vote getter but only seven votes separate the two candidates for the second seat in that district.

Democrat Lois Delmore has a slight lead over Republican Don Dietrich.

The state is expected to give the recount final approval on November 17th. Grand Forks County Auditor Debbie Nelson says the recount will be complete by November 24th.

"Today (Monday) we had our canvassing board and we counted any absentees that came in after election day and any that were returned from polling sites on election night and now the polling results for the county are official," Nelson said.
