Votes being certified for Wis Supreme Court race


MADISON (AP) -- Canvassers have started the process of certifying the results of the Wisconsin Supreme Court race.

JoAnne Kloppenburg declared victory over incumbent state Supreme Court Justice David Prosser on Wednesday. Unofficial totals show her with a scant 204-vote margin out of nearly 1.5 million cast in Tuesday's election.

Prosser's campaign hasn't said whether it plans to ask for a recount.

Each county's board of canvassers is now reconciling the totals, making sure the ballots in hand match the number of people who voted.

They have until April 15 to submit those totals. The candidates then have three business days to ask for a recount.

Government Accountability Board attorney Mike Haas expects to start getting canvassing numbers starting either later Thursday or Friday and they will post it on their website.
