MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A state board on Monday will certify results from the Nov. 4 election and determine which races are headed to recounts.

The State Elections Canvassing Board meets at 2 p.m. in the Alabama Capitol.

A recount is expected in a north Alabama legislative race where a veteran senator is facing possible defeat.

Roger Bedford of Russellville trailed Republican Larry Stutts by just 66 votes in unofficial returns. Alabama law requires an automatic recount if the margin of victory is less than 0.5 percent.

State law requires a recount to begin within 72 hours of election results being certified. However, that would fall on Thanksgiving. Officials with the Alabama Secretary of State’s office said they anticipate the recounts to occur on the following Monday.
