65 Missing Ballots Found as Milwaukee County Nears Recount End

MILWAUKEE – Milwaukee County was almost to the end of its presidential recount on Wednesday, Nov. 25. Workers had counted mostly all of the 460,000 ballots.

Then a problem was discovered.

The city of Milwaukee’s recount tally was 65 votes short of the numbers counted on election night. That led to a search to find those missing ballots.

“We searched our reconstructive ballots, our blank ballots and we could not find them there. We went back to our warehouse and located them in the voting machine where it appears that the chief left them. We have not yet counted those ballots to ensure that they are all accounted for, but we did locate ballots in the voting machine,” said Claire Woodall-Vogg, executive director of the Milwaukee Election Commission.
