Practically Speaking

Kyle and her husband moved to Brookfield in 1986. She became active in local politics and started blogging in 2004. Her focus is primarily on local issues but often includes state and national topics, too. Kyle looks at things from the taxpayers' perspective in a creative, yet down to earth way, addressing them from a practical point of view.

Elections, WISCONSIN

As I sat at my computer at nearly 1am, the results were still not conclusive on Prosser/Kloppenberg, with 98% reporting and Prosser ahead by a slim 1,878 votes.

But one thing is conclusive... I just received an email about assembling a team of experienced election observers and lawyers to monitor the recount, as required by law with such a slim margin.

When I awoke this morning, 99% reporting, Prosser's lead was down to 585, with several precincts in heavy Democrat territory still not in on the AP page. (Only Taylor is Republican.)

This is really torture! I am going back to bed.

Ryan on Fairly Conservative was monitoring the results all evening had a few interesting insights in comments 42 & 43.

9:15am: 99% reporting, Prosser 736,878, Kloppenberg 736.043, Prosser ahead 835.

10:49am: 99% reporting, Kloppenberg ahead by 224 votes. 3 Precincts left to report: 2 in Milwaukee, 1 in Jefferson.

I do wonder if there will be more voters than eligible voters in certain counties. I am hearing all sorts of reports on being given xeroxed ballots that would be transferred to a regular ballot later, using red pens, instructions to lightly mark a ballot in pencil, and more. This is going to be a long, drawn out mess.
