90. Milwaukee has a higher than average number of ballots with
no vote recorded for the SC race. Don't know if an invalid vote was cast or vote was unrecognized. It would be nice to know what the situation is. Mind you, we're still not talking about that many votes. I was looking at last night's stats. Many counties don't tell you how many ballots were cast. If you assume that the total number of votes cast equals the total number of ballots cast (which is a conservative assumption, and not a very good one, but all I've got), the statewide average of "no votes" in the SC race was about 1.3%. "No vote" for Waukesha was only .68%, about 1% for Dane, and 1.5% for Milwaukee. It could be that those machines were calibrated in an interesting fashion.
