BRIGHTON, Colo. (AP) - Recounts in two Adams County races that went narrowly for Democrats last month will not go forward after a local GOP official withdrew his request for another ballot tally.

The recount requests came in a commissioner race and state House contest after county GOP Chairman Gary Mikes said he suspected that invalid ballots were turned in by voters. He said he wanted to make sure voter signatures belong to eligible voters.

But Mikes tells The Denver Post (https://dpo.st/1uifPhl ) that attorneys told him he wouldn’t get sufficient access to voter signatures to see if any ballots were wrongfully cast.

The recounts would have cost about $35,000.

The House District 31 race involved Democrat Joseph Salazar and Republican challenger Carol Beckler. The county commissioner race involved Democrat Steve O’Dorisio and Republican Joseph Domenico.
