Elections Code – ELEC § 15625

The recount shall be conducted under the supervision of the elections official by special recount boards consisting of four voters of the county appointed by the elections official.  Each member of a recount board shall receive the same compensation per day as is paid in the jurisdiction within which the recount is being conducted to members of precinct boards, other than inspectors, to be paid out of the appropriate public treasury.

If the office of the elections official is the subject of the recount, the governing body shall appoint an officer, other than the elections official, to appoint and supervise the special recount boards.
