Anti-abortion activists called for the recount after voters struck down a measure that would have significantly restricted abortion in the conservative state.

The vote received national attention because it was the first of its kind following the Supreme Court's overturning of 'Roe v.

Wade.'.

The ballot measure was defeated by approximately 165,000 votes.

Less than 100 votes were changed as a result of the recount.

The recount was funded by a local Kansan who is a well-known anti-abortion activist.

Both the funder and the recount organizer have suggested there may have been irregularities concerning the initial vote.

Neither have provided any evidence to support such claims. In addition, both claim that calling for the recount had less to do with the actual measure.

But instead was called for and conducted to promote election integrity.

Of the 150 counties which participated in the vote.

Nine were included in the recount.

In some of the counties, the margin remained consistent with the original vote.

Other reported discrepancies in the vote were extremely small, amounting to less than 10 votes changed
