According to the California Secretary of State, anyone can request a recount as long as they're willing to pay for it. There’s no set price for a recount, but it can cost up to hundreds of thousands of dollars. It would include paying for staff hours, ballot transportation, space rentals and much more.

Riverside County Registrar Rebecca Spencer told Peter Daut that it is the closest assembly race she has ever seen. She said should there be a recount, whoever requests it would have to put it in writing for both counties.

The Riverside County Registrar's Office certified its results last week. Spencer said the hand recount could take months.

The deadline to request a recount for this race is Dec. 16, the registrar's office confirmed to News Channel 3 on Tuesday. As of Dec. 6, no one has requested a recount in Riverside County.
