Reminder: Recount hearing set for Thursday

NORMAN — Incumbent Republican Aaron Stiles and challenger Democrat Paula Roberts, their lawyers and Cleveland County Election Board officials will appear at 9 a.m. Thursday before Judge Tracy Schumacher in the Cleveland County Courthouse.

Once all the votes from the Nov. 6 election were tallied, Stiles of Norman was the unofficial winner of the state House District 45 race by a margin of 18 votes.

Democrat Paula Roberts, also of Norman, has asked for a recount.

Additionally, Roberts’ attorney, Greg Bledsoe, said he has filed a petition that “numerous irregularities” had tainted the election and that either Roberts should be declared the winner or it should be determined there is a mathematical uncertainty as to the outcome.
