Wisconsin Supreme Court Recount Update: 2,029 Between Candidates At 99 Percent
WISCONSINREPORT.COM (05/19/2011) - With about 99 percent of the votes in the Wisconsin Supreme Court election votes recounted, JoAnne Kloppenburg's lead is dwindling down to just 2,029 votes separating her from incumbent David Prosser. Government Accountability Board recount results as of mid-morning today indicate all counties and part of the controversial results in Waukesha County have been recounted. The only thing that remains to be counted is about half of the Waukesha County votes.
These are unofficial recount results that have not been certified by the Government Accountability Board (G.A.B.):
As of 9:45 a.m. on Thursday, May 19, 2011, 3,545 Reporting Units have reported results, which have been reviewed by Government Accountability Board staff. That is approximately 98 percent of the of the 3,602 total Reporting Units.
So far, counties have recounted 1,477,312 votes, which is approximately 99 percent of the orginal votes cast in the State Supreme Court race.
The Government Accountability Board posted recount results indicate that a couple of Reporting Units in the Waukesha County Village of Sussex are under review. The two reporting units are apparently responsible for numerous wards.
Other Waukesha County areas yet to post recounted totals include the City of Muskego, and part of the City of Waukesha.
The next Government Accountability Board update of recount totals will be posted before noon on Friday, May 20, 2011.
