DEC 09, 2016Authorities and tabulators were very nice and respectful, and open. We had no problems voicing our concerns, photographing, taking videos, or asking questions as per the regulations. However, the panel seemed to not want to be there and consistently agreed to ignore discrepancies and just say everything was okay. They noted our objections in their minutes and then moved on. Nevertheless, no district I observed was off by more than a few votes out of every couple thousand, and they were throwing out as many Trump votes as Clinton.
DEC 09, 2016Final day of our recount. Went smoothly with no problems.
DEC 09, 2016Poll books for city of West Bend were a mess and could not be reconciled. Originals could not be found, only photocopies were submitted. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B46eww3XyHBYemlTTzlSUHRzR1E/view There was also some issue with the seals on the ballot boxes that I didn’t fully understand. It was originally stated that the seals were broken or missing. After a few minutes the panel declared their minutes were in error and that the boxes were in fact sealed but the numbers didn’t match???
