Information for Recounts can be found in Chapter 23, Title 34, Idaho
Code. All requests for recounts for Federal, State, county or municipal
office or supporting or opposing a state, county or city measure are
filed with the Attorney General's Office. Recounts for all other offices
and ballot measures filed with the County Clerk.

Attached is the only document that we have regarding Recounts. I believe
that the Attorney General's Office may have guidelines as well as they
are responsible for conducting the recount.
