Beauregard Parish Sheriff Candidate Jim Jacobsen submitted a formal letter to the Beauregard Parish Clerk of Court's office on Monday, October 14, 2019, requesting a recount in October 12, 2019, vote.

The request follows events that seemed questionable during the counting of votes when Jacobsen appeared to be in the lead until the early voting and absentee voting records were added. There was a considerable amount of discussion regarding the issue on the internet and why those votes weren't added until so far into the count.

Following the addition, Jacobsen dropped from first place to third behind candidates John Gott and Mark Hereford.
