(Indianapolis) – Please note the following update: The Indiana Recount Commission will now meet Sunday, December 7th, 2008, at Noon in the Tippecanoe Room on the first floor of the Tippecanoe County Office Building, 20 North 3rd Street, in Lafayette.

The Commission will rule on the recount and determine a final count in the election for Indiana House of Representatives, District 26, between Republican Randy Truitt and Democrat John Polles.

"This process provides us a good opportunity, on the heels of an already successful election, to spot check our procedures in a very transparent way," said Secretary Rokita. "It also gives the voters and taxpayers of District 26 confidence in the system that will determine who will represent them at the Statehouse."
