Supreme Court Recount Underway

by

Madison, Wis.(WHBL-Learfield) - Wisconsin’s first statewide recount in 22 years got off to a rocky start yesterday. Clerks in Chippewa and Menominee counties never did get their tallies started. According to the state Government Accountability Board, Chippewa County resolved a problem with voting machine memory cards. And the Menominee County clerk needed more information from a school district. Both counties will start their tallies today. Dane County Clerk Karen Peters apologized to observers at the start of yesterday’s process, saying it would be a bit chaotic. Even the state accountability board reported a problem with the spreadsheet it’s using to report updates twice a day. Early this morning, the Board’s Web site said just over 500 of the state’s 36-hundred voting districts had reported unofficial results. Those numbers gave incumbent Justice David Prosser an early lead over challenger JoAnne Kloppenburg, 86-thousand to 76-thousand. State law requires the recount to be finished by May ninth, but the state says it will ask a judge for an extension if things go slower than expected.
