Results Still Not Final In Wisconsin Supreme Court Race

Tuesday, April 12th, 2011 at 9:50 am

It will be at least tomorrow before the final county in the state is done verifying votes cast in last week’s Wisconsin Supreme Court election.

The Government Accountability Board said yesterday that Milwaukee County won’t have its results submitted until Wednesday at the earliest. Friday is the deadline.

Three other counties have also yet to canvas their results. Officials in Crawford, Oneida and Sauk counties still have work to complete, and then they must also post the results on their websites.

Initial unofficial results showed challenger JoAnne Kloppenburg defeating incumbent Justice David Prosser. However, a mistake in Waukesha County reported Thursday gave Prosser about a 7,500-vote advantage.

Kloppenburg would have three business days after the last county submits its results to seek a recount.
