MILWAUKEE (AP) — There’s only one county left that needs to finish verifying its Wisconsin Supreme Court race votes and it’s the state’s largest — Milwaukee County.
County Election Commission Administrator Lisa Catlin Weiner said she expects to be finished by Friday afternoon. The deadline is 5 p.m. Friday for her to report her final tally to the Government Accountability Board.
So far they have found no irregularities in the April 5 election and Justice David Prosser’s 7,300-vote statewide lead over challenger JoAnne Kloppenburg looks like it will hold up.
Kloppenburg declared victory April 6, based on unofficial results that showed her with a 204-vote lead. The next day, Waukesha County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus said she failed to report more than 14,000 votes, which flipped the race in Prosser’s favor.
