MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Justice David Prosser held a 7,316-vote lead over challenger JoAnne Kloppenburg before a statewide recount began last Wednesday. The state Government Accountability Board is providing daily updates on the recount's progress by precinct. Here's a look at where the recount stood as of Thursday afternoon:

--Precincts recounted and given a preliminary review by board staff: 2,832 of 3,602

--Prosser's current total: 565,662

--Kloppenburg's current total: 530,768

--The board reported 1,097,566 votes have been recounted, about 73 percent of the total votes cast.

--The recount is scheduled to be complete by May 9, but board director Kevin Kennedy said the board plans to seek an extension. Dane and Waukesha counties have requested more time, he said.
