(Wis.) Deal reached for hand recount in 31 counties for Kloppenburg Prosser race.

Madison Supreme Court Justice David Prosser and Assistant Attorney General JoAnne Kloppenburg have reached a compromise on doing a hand recount in their tight race in certain areas of the state but not the entire state.

Dane County Judge Richard Niess approved the deal Thursday, allowing the statewide recount to continue with the hand recount in the specific areas.

Jim Troupis, an attorney for Prosser, said the hand recount would be held in areas in which older voting machines do not allow their data to be copied, which would require their data to be destroyed before the machines could be used in a recount. That would involve municipalities in at least 31 counties.

"In those areas, we've agreed to a hand recount," Troupis said.
