Wednesday, Alabama's Secretary of State, along with members of the State Canvassing Board, the Attorney General and the governor's legal advisor, signed the final vote returns in Montgomery.
The state's final results from the election show Republican Governor-Elect Bob Riley with three more votes than originally reported from the 67 counties.
Republican Attorney General Bill Pryor, who declared that Don Siegelman's request for a statewide recount illegal, said he's confident in the state's election officials, but said the state's election laws need to be reformed.
The next Secretary of State, Nancy Worley, said a top to bottom review is needed.
A spokesman for Governor-Elect Bob Riley said he would support a recount law, provided it is part of a comprehensive reform of election laws and it includes safeguards against voter fraud.
