Wisconsin 21st Senate District RECOUNT - Day One

Not much exciting to report.  This recount is different then the David Prosser Supreme Court recount of 2011.  

Prosser was done as a "hand" recount and this one is being done as a "machine" recount.  

The "tabulators" (me) simply hand count every ballot (we do not separate by candidate).  We see if the totals reconcile with the poll book for that ward, and then every ballot is run through the voting machine again.  

We do NOT look at any voter registrations and voter intent came in to play only a couple of times today.

The only other thing I have to say is something to my favorite reporter Stephanie Jones:

When will you quit calling me "fake"? :)

Recount starts with large crowd, expected to last until July 2
