One million down and about two million to go in the Wisconsin recount.

The margin between Trump and Clinton is unchanged in the six counties completed.
From Wisconsin Elections Commission:
These are the explanations provided by the clerks for difference in numbers between canvass and the recount:
Dane County: 12 Absentee ballots were left in their certificate envelopes, unopened, on Election Night, for City of Monona Wards 6-10. Ballots were oepend and canvased by the board during the recount.
Fond Du Lac County: 13 absentee envolopes were missing from Election Night and 1 absentee ballot counted on Election Night was rejected during recount canvassing of Town of Fond Du Lac Wards 1-8. A draw-down was done resulting in a loss of 7 votes for Trump/Pence and a loss of 7 votes for Clinton/Kaine.
Grant County: Village of Woodman and Village of Livingston removed from Day 4 results pending verification of recount numbers by Grant County Board of Canvas.
Racine County: Increase of 13 votes for Clinton/Kaine, votes were not counted on Election Night due to non-standard pens used to mark ballots.
