Wisconsin Recount Update - Day 8

Here is the Wisconsin 2016 presidential election recount results update, Day 8:

From Wisconsin Elections Commission:

Numbers for the City of Milwaukee do not include absentee ballots, which have not yet been recounted. Milwaukee counts its absentee ballots centrally (not at the polling place) on Election Night. When those absentee ballots have been counted the numbers will be updated.

Explanations provided by clerks for the differences in numbers between canvass and the recount are also contained in the attached Explanation of Changes per Reporting Unit PDF

*The Day 8 spreadsheet has been updated since posting to include the remaining City of Pewaukee reporting units and City of Waukesha Ward 1 and Ward 2 recount results.

Dane County: 20 Absentee ballots were left in their certificate envelopes on Election Night for the City of Madison Ward 29.

Eau Claire County: Decrease of 48 votes in City of Eau Claire Ward 36 due to human error during original Board of Canvass. -18 Votes for Trump/Pence, -30 votes for Clinton/Kaine.

Grant County: Recount vote totals for City of Platteville Wards 7-9 adjusted from Election Day totals due to discrepancies discovered during hand recount. Ward reported tabulator issues on Election Day.

Juneau County:
Corrected Day 7 vote counts for Town Lyndon Wards 1-3. Trump/Pence now accurately reflect a total of 328 votes.

Manitowoc County: Increase of 9 votes in City of Manitowoc Wards 3-4, 22, increase of 11 votes in City of Manitowoc Wards 15-16, and an increase of 24 votes in City of Manitowoc Wards 19-20, 27 due to ballots that were marked incorrectly on Election Day. Voter intent was determined during recount canvass.

Outagamie County: Increase of 13 votes in Town of Grand Chute Wards 11-14 due to ballots that were marked incorrectly on Election Day. Voter intent was determined during recount canvass. +7 votes for Trump/Pence and +6 votes for Clinton/Kaine.

Price County: Net change of 10 votes in Town of Lake Wards 1-2 due to tally errors on Election Night.

Waukesha County: Increase of 12 votes in City of Brookfield Ward 5. Recount Board of Canvass determined absentee ballots originally rejected on Election Day were valid.

About 80 percent of the recount is complete.

Milwaukee County's recount is complete.

FOX6 News reports that Hillary Clinton is up by 61 votes.

47 of 72 counties have now completed the recount.

Approximately 82 percent of ballots have been recounted.

Trump/Pence originally led Clinton/Kaine by 22,177. So far, not including the City of Milwaukee, Clinton/Kaine have gained 61 more votes than Trump/Pence, but still trail.

Including the December 7 results, Trump/Pence are up 495 votes, Clinton/Kaine are up 556 votes, Castle/Bradley are up 20 votes, Johnson/Weld are up 63 votes, Stein/Baraka are up 64 votes, Moorehead/Lilly are up 8 votes, and De la Fuente/Steinberg are up 15 votes.

Important Note: The changes in vote totals do not include the City of Milwaukee, which has reported partial numbers for individual reporting units (wards or combinations of wards) because it is recounting absentee ballots separately. Milwaukee is included in the 82 percent completed.
