Wisconsin Recount Update - Day 9: Hillary Up 49

Here's the update from Day 9 of the Wisconsin 2016 presidential recount.

From the 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

Ashland County:
Original election results were inadvertently entered as recount results for the Day 6 update. The recount results have been correctly updated to the Day 9 spreadsheet.

Calumet County: Increase of 15 ballots in City of Chilton Wards 1-5 because ballots were marked incorrectly on Election Day. Voter intent was determined during recount canvas. +11 votes for Trump/Pence and +4 votes for Clinton/Kaine.

Dane County: Increase of 12 votes in City of Verona Wards 2-4 due to ballots being counted as part of City of Verona Wards 1,5 in error on Election Day.

Eau Claire County: Increase of 14 votes in City of Eau Claire Ward 39 due to ballots that were marked incorrectly on Election Day, where the recount canvass determined voter intent, and the addition of 5 absentee ballots that were not counted on Election Day.
Waukesha County has finished its recount.

From FOX6 News:

Waukesha County announced it finished processing ballots late Friday morning, December 9th.

The Waukesha County clerk says it's a relief to have all the ballots counted but her work isn't completely done. Election officials spent several hours going over the vote totals.

Nine days and 240,000 ballots later, Waukesha County can now join the more than 60 counties that have completed the recount.

...[Kathleen Novack, Waukesha County clerk] says the results from the recount and election night will change by about 80 votes, spread out among all the candidates.

...Across the state, Hillary Clinton is currently up 609 votes while President-elect Donald Trump is up 560.

With 89 percent of the recount complete, Hillary has gained only 49 votes over Trump. Out of millions cast, the results have barely changed.

What a total waste!
