Clerks brace for possible recount after busy election day

The clerks for Door and Kewaunee counties were happy to see many of you head to the polls on Tuesday for the mid-term election. Door County saw an 80 percent voter turnout on Tuesday, boosted by a strong slate of federal, state, and local elections and four referendum questions. Kewaunee County saw about a 62 percent voter turn-out, with only residents in the Town of Franklin having something extra to vote for, with the Denmark School District looking to pass its own operational and capital referendum questions. Only one race is yet to be decided in Wisconsin, with just over 7,000 votes separating Wisconsin Secretary of State Doug La Follette and his Republican challenger Amy Loudenbeck. A possible recount is likely weeks away, but Kewaunee County Clerk Jamie Annoye saying they are preparing for the chance it may happen.

The League of Women Voters of Wisconsin reported that nearly 64 percent of eligible voters cast a ballot for Tuesday’s election, which was the highest voter turnout in the nation.
