Despite the tight vote count, Murren said there was no recount requirement for this election because it's a district race, not statewide. Early Wednesday morning, there was still no clear-cut winner, as the vote margin remained neck and neck between Republican Rick Saccone and Democrat Conor Lamb with all votes counted except absentee ballots. However, Murren noted that petitions for a recount are allowed.
