    Prosser gains 7,500 votes in Waukesha County

    Prosser gains 7,500 votes in Waukesha County - JSOnline
    In a political bombshell, the clerk in a Republican stronghold is set to release new vote totals giving 7,500 votes in the state Supreme Court race back toward Justice David Prosser, swinging the race significantly in his favor.

    The Waukesha County clerk's office has told state elections officials that they will be adjusting the vote totals to give incumbent David Prosser more than 7,000 new votes, said Mike Haas, staff attorney for the state Government Accountability Board.

    "Waukesha will be adjusting their vote totals by 14,000," Haas said the Accountability Board was told.

    Looking like Prosser won?

    I was just watching the coverage of story on FOX and it seems they had missed a whole towns worth of votes.

    I am glad that if he does in fact win by over 7,000 votes it will be a clear victory and send the message that the Republican has been doing a good job.

    Had he lost by about 200 votes or less that would suck big time.

    I once lost an election by 10 votes and I tell you that was very hard to deal with.

    It is going to be months before we know for sure who won. Recount will be starting soon, followed by the court cases.

    7000 vote margin seems decent. What are the rules for recounts and does this fall within the margin for an auto recount?

    According to them, any candidate can ask for a recount at any time, although there are fees involved. Free recounts occur with the margin is less than .5% of the votes, and cheap recounts occur when the margin is less than 2% of the vote. Since we're looking at about a .1% margin on the last check, it's likely there will be a recount (if the loser wants one).
    Looks like it would be a "cheap recount". I think that will be a lot of votes for Klop to make up, though.

    Difference is over half a percent. Kloppenburg will have to pay 5 bucks per precinct for the recall.

    Hold the presses, there is this from Aug 13, 2010:

    Officials dispute reliability of Waukesha County clerk's election data system - JSOnline

    Waukesha Waukesha County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus' decision to go it alone in how she collects and maintains election results has some county officials raising a red flag about the integrity of the system.

    Nickolaus said she decided to take the election data collection and storage system off the county's computer network - and keep it on stand-alone personal computers accessible only in her office - for security reasons. ...
