19. Maybe it goes to a judge, but you don't have to argue your case to a judge for a machine count
Edited on Sat Apr-09-11 07:48 PM by Bjorn Against
If a candidate requests a machine recount they can get a machine recount under Wisconsin law, if the margin is too large they may have to pay for that recount but it will be granted. The law to get a hand recount is much more stringent, you actually have to go in front of a judge and convince him or her that a machine count is not sufficient and a hand count is necessary. There is no burden of proof required to get a machine recount, but to get a hand recount the burden of proof is on the candidate to show a hand count is necessary.
