There's been a vote-count change in Wisconsin -- Prosser is now in the lead
I hope this is only temporary and other changes give Kloppenburg the lead again.

The latest vote count in the state Supreme Court race in Winnebago County indicates incumbent David Prosser is leading Assistant Attorney General JoAnne Kloppenburg in votes.

A tally compiled by The Associated Press Wednesday and used by news organizations statewide, including the Journal Sentinel, indicated Kloppenburg was leading the race by 204 votes. Figures on Winnebago County's website are now different from those collected by the AP.

Winnebago County's numbers say Prosser received 20,701 votes to Kloppenburg's 18,887. The AP has 19,991 for Prosser to Kloppenburg's 18,421.

The new numbers would give Prosser 244 more votes or a 40-vote lead statewide.

... Figures on Winnebago County's website are now different ... Prosser ... 20,701 ... Kloppenburg's 18,887. ... AP has 19,991 for Prosser to Kloppenburg's 18,421.

The new numbers would give Prosser 244 more votes, or a 40-vote lead statewide.

.... The AP last checked figures with Winnebago County at 10:14 a.m. Wednesday, according to the AP. The county adjusted its figures at 2:27 p.m. ...

The news service is working to reach the Winnebago County clerk, but the clerk is participating in the canvass of the vote and has not returned a message.

4. There is going to be a recount regardless.The lead may very well switch back and forth several times
before this is over.

13. Yep. Not to say that we don't need our black-box voting team
back on duty.

At least in Wisconsin there are no longer punch cards. The outcome won't hang on a chad.

5. We gave Dems a majority and they were silent on voting integrity
So this should be assumed. Our democracy has been betrayed. I don't care which party the betrayers are in. It's betrayal.

Fraud.
Republican officials cooking the numbers after the fact to steal the election from JoAnne.

9. All those Freepers crying about election fraud! Now what??
Edited on Thu Apr-07-11 03:03 PM by riderinthestorm
And FWIW, I'm pretty sure there's going to be a lot of see-sawing on this before the end... I just hope that over in Freeperland, now that they have contemplated the possibility of fraud, it's beginning to dawn on them that it stinks for ALL sides when our voting systems are compromised.

19. County Clerk Sue Ertmer, who hadn't returned AP's call, is on the Winnebago GOP website:
http://winnebago.wisgop.info/contact-us /

And in an article about the recalls, she was complaining about the cost to the county:

http://www.thenorthwestern.com/article/20110313/OSH0101...

Winnebago County Clerk Sue Ertmer estimated it could cost $40,000 to $50,000, none of which as been budgeted for. Of that amount, Oshkosh City Clerk Pamela Ubrig estimated $17,000 to $18,000 would be borne by the city.

Costs include publication of the election, training poll workers, printing ballots and programming equipment.

"A primary would mean an even longer timeline and twice the cost," Ertmer said. "We'd just have to come up with the funds. It'd be a huge process. This will have an impact on all of the communities involved."

22. I'd like to see how those numbers from Winnebago for
the SC vote compare to the total number of voters in Winnebago. I wonder if there are more votes than voters?
