MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The Wisconsin Government Accountability Board will be asking for an extension in the deadline to complete the recount in the state Supreme Court race.

Board director Kevin Kennedy said Thursday that Dane County has requested a one-day extension to Monday’s deadline. He says Waukesha County has also asked for a deadline extension and the board is seeking more details about how long it will need.

Kennedy said Milwaukee County, the state’s largest, intends to complete its counting of the ballots on Friday.

JoAnne Kloppenburg asked for the recount after results of the April 5 election showed her about 7,300 votes behind incumbent Justice David Prosser.

As of Thursday morning, all but 11 of the state’s 72 counties had completed the recount.
