Dane County, Wisconsin Completes Recount

The second county conducting a recount in Wisconsin completed the process on Saturday, the county clerk said.

Dane County Clerk Scott McDonell announced Saturday night that the recount was finished.

“However we still need a few hours to reconcile the numbers and complete paperwork,” he said in a tweet.

The Dane County Board of Canvass will reconvene at 10 a.m. on Sunday morning to do paperwork and finalize the process, including certification. As with the rest of the recount, the process will be streamed live.

The vote totals weren’t disclosed. Before the recount, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden had 260,157 votes to President Donald Trump’s 78,789 votes, according to unofficial results from McDonell’s office. Biden was ahead statewide by about 20,000 votes.

Wisconsin gives the winner 10 electoral votes.

Dane and Milwaukee counties started recounts on Nov. 20, after the Wisconsin Elections Commission approved a partial recount request from Trump’s campaign. The campaign paid $3 million for the recounts in the two counties.

Milwaukee County finished their recount on Nov. 27. The end result was Biden gaining a net of 132 votes.

“I promised that this would be a transparent and fair process, and it was,” Milwaukee County Clerk George Christenson told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

“There was an examination of every ballot by election workers, a meticulous recounting of every ballot that was properly cast, a transparent process that allowed the public to observe, a fair process that allows the aggrieved candidate who sought the recount an opportunity to observe and object to ballots they believe should not be counted.”

Several legal matters are ongoing in Wisconsin in regards to election results.

One group filed an emergency petition asking the Wisconsin Supreme Court to  block the certification of election results because of alleged irregularities. In a response filing on Friday, state election officials said the petition made arguments that rest “on the flimsiest of legal and factual bases.”

Another lawsuit filed last week also seeks to block the state’s certification of election results, arguing that all ballots cast via drop boxes are illegal and should be discarded.
