Vote Count Begins Monday

Wisconsin’s contentious spring election is far from finished. Almost two thousand local clerks still have to guard the ballots until Monday afternoon – when the counting process can start.  Normally, the count starts when the polls close, but a judge ordered absentee ballots will be given the extra time to arrive in the mail.  Those clerks have placed the ballots they have in sealed bags, located them in safes, closets and offices, and have done the same thing with voting machines that have the electronic records inside.
