Elections board to approve Waukesha County changes

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Changes in procedure made after the Waukesha County clerk failed to report thousands of votes in this spring’s Wisconsin Supreme Court election were set to be approved by the state board that oversees elections.

The Government Accountability Board worked together with Waukesha County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus to ensure her procedures for the collection, posting, compiling and canvassing of election results are in compliance with the law.

State investigators in September determined that Nickolaus broke the law by not reporting 14,000 votes in the race between Justice David Prosser and challenger JoAnne Kloppenburg, but her conduct wasn’t criminal.

According to a memo to the board at its Tuesday meeting, Nickolaus worked diligently and cooperatively to develop new procedures that ensure transparency and provide security, documentation, checks and balances.
