A recount has been requested by Democrat incumbent of Iowa House District 82 Phil Miller.

House District 82 covers all of Davis and Van Buren counties, and part of Jefferson County. Republican Jeff Shipley currently leads Miller 6,111-6,077, a difference of 34 votes. The recount was requested for only Van Buren and Jefferson counties. The next step is putting together a three-person board in each county to run the recount. When the boards have been selected, they will decide whether to recount by hand or use electronic voting equipment. Time and location of the recount have not been announced yet.
