Upon completion of the recount of the ballots of all precincts listed in an application for a recount or upon stopping the recount prior to such time, or in the case of a recount as provided in section 3515.011 of the Revised Code, the board of elections shall promptly prepare and certify an amended abstract showing the votes cast in each precinct in its county in which the nomination, election, or question or issue was submitted to electors, which amended abstract shall embody the votes of the precincts, the ballots of which were recounted, as shown by such recount. Copies of such certified amended abstracts shall be mailed to such other boards or election officials as required in the case of the original abstract which such amended abstract amends.

If the nomination, election, or question or issue concerning which such recount was made was submitted only to electors within a county, the board shall make an amended declaration of the result of such election in the same manner required in the making of its original declaration of the result of such election.

If the nomination, election, or question or issue concerning which a recount was made was submitted only to electors of a district comprised of more than one county but less than all of the counties of the state, the board of the most populous county in such district shall canvass the amended abstracts received from the board of each county in such district in which a recount was made, and shall make an amended declaration of the results of such election in such district in the same manner required in the making of its original declaration of the result of such election.

If the nomination, election, or question or issue concerning which a recount was made was submitted only to electors of a subdivision located in more than one county, the board of the county in which the major portion of the population of such subdivision is located shall canvass the amended abstracts received from the board of each county in which a portion of the population of such subdivision is located and in which a recount was made, and shall make an amended declaration of the results of such election in such subdivision in the same manner required in the making of its original declaration of the result of such election.

If the nomination, election, or question or issue concerning which a recount was made was submitted to electors throughout the entire state, the secretary of state shall canvass all amended abstracts received from the board of each county in the state in which a recount was made, and shall make an amended declaration of the results of such election throughout the entire state in the same manner required in the making of his original declaration of the result of such election.
