Statement Regarding Waukesha County Investigation

April 19, 2011

MADISON, WI – The Wisconsin Government Accountability Board staff has completed its review of election results from Waukesha County for the Wisconsin Supreme Court race between Justice David Prosser and JoAnne Kloppenburg.  A statement describing our review is attached below.

We are satisfied that the numbers reported by the municipalities were consistent with the numbers certified by the Waukesha County Board of Canvassers.  Although staff identified a few anomalies, the G.A.B. finds no major discrepancies between Waukesha County’s official canvass report and the documentation provided by the municipalities.

G.A.B. staff members spent four days reviewing the election materials from all reporting units in Waukesha County, and interviewed Clerk Kathy Nickolaus.  We will continue our investigation into issues related to the reporting of vote totals on Election Night and reports from the 2006 election posted on the Waukesha County website.
