Nearly 400 Unopened Ballots From Milwaukee’s South Side Discovered During Recount


386 unopened ballots from a south side Milwaukee neighborhood were discovered Tuesday morning during the ongoing presidential recount, elections officials say.

“It seems like it was a human error on Election Day,” Claire Woodall-Vogg, Executive Director for the Milwaukee Election Commission, told reporters.

“All of the unopened ballots were on the bottom, with all of the open certificate envelopes on top,” Woodall-Vogg said. “And knowing how thorough we are at Central Count, I have no doubt that they brought these ballots up to the table saying that they were complete, not indicating to anyone that half of the ward was missing.”
