GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — The Government Accountability Board says that as of Sunday afternoon only about one third of the state’s reporting units have completed their recount of the Wisconsin Supreme Court election.

The recount information is due to the state in just eight days.

The recount process began Wednesday with Justice David Prosser holding a more than 7,000 vote lead over challenger JoAnne Kloppenburg.

In Brown County, the clerk’s office was busy all weekend working on the recount. County Clerk Darlene Marcelle tells WBAY-TV that her office has processed 30,000 ballots and they’re about half done.

Marcelle said they expect to be finished with the recount in Brown County by Wednesday.
