Waukesha County Recount Extension

On Monday, May 9, Dane County Circuit Court Judge Richard Niess ordered an extension in time for Waukesha County to complete its Supreme Court recount until May 26, 2011.  A status conference will be held at 11:30 a.m. Friday, May 13.

Monday Update: One spreadsheet update today

G.A.B. staff will not have a noon post today with an updated spreadsheet.  Staff is reviewing all the information that came in over the weekend and this morning.  Today's update should include information for all counties except Waukesha County, which received an extension this morning.

The recount is complete in 68 of Wisconsin's 72 counties, and 60 of 72 counties have been certified.  We expect all but Waukesha County will be complete by the deadline on Monday, May 9.

Waupaca County Recount Minutes

Posted in

Earlier this week an issue arose in Waupaca County after the recount discovered votes that were accidentally omitted from the original canvass of the election.  In our efforts to explain what happened, we reported information from the county clerk, which we later discovered also contained some errors.

To eliminate any confusion, we are posting excerpts from the official minutes of the Waupaca County Board of Canvassers for the towns of Larrabee and Royalton, where additional votes were discovered.  Please click on the attachments below.

Waupaca County Clerk Mary Robbins has provided a more detailed presentation of the changes in numbers from the county's original canvass of the Supreme Court race.  Errors caused the Board of Canvassers to miss a significant number of votes from the towns of Larrabee and Royalton.

Recount Summary for May 2

Posted in

More than half of the reporting units are now in, and 24 of the 72 counties have completed their recounts.

G.A.B. staff is receiving far fewer questions and calls from county clerks regarding recall procedures.

A note about the spreadsheet:  Going forward, it will contain all the reporting units, whether or not any results have been reported.  Some past spreadsheets had reporting units removed if we had received data but were still in the process of reviewing it.  Now, if data is in but not reported, it will say the reporting unit is under review.
