The recount is over! Waukesha County finished it's recount Wednesday and sent all the volunteer tabulators home. All that's left is another day or two to reconcile the numbers.
I left work early yesterday because it was slow for once. Courthouse is on my way, so stopped to see the new cafeteria recount setup. Every time I get to the courthouse there's little going on in the recount. After work they're usually done counting for the day and just going over the paperwork. Even though the count is over, this being the last time I'd stop by, there was something going on.
Laurel Walker from the Journal Sentinel was there asking Judge Mawdsley questions and I was just listening over her shoulder. More questions were asked than I'd have thought of. I did learn a thing or two about recounts, elections and issues. Also Jim, a volunteer greeter, gave me his unofficial take on the recount and shared with me the interesting tidbits he witnessed.
Henry Rosoff of Fox 6 was also in attendance. I saw someone looking like him but didn't know for sure until he talked to me. Maybe because I was the only observer, he interviewed me. I told him it's good to get the problems out in the open so future elections will run smoother. Also mentioned relief at having recount finally over and thanked all the volunteer tabulators who saved taxpayers a lot of money. You can see my three seconds of fame here around the 1:27 mark.
