Unreturned absentee ballots could alter GOP Assembly primary

Feb. 21, 2013 1:54 p.m. | The results of Tuesday's Republican primary for the 98th Assembly District in Waukesha County - where Adam Neylon emerged the unofficial winner by a slim margin of 30 votes - hangs in the balance as municipal clerks wait a few more days for a total of 154 unreturned absentee ballots.

Clerks in four of five communities in the district are waiting until 4 p.m. Friday to see how many of the absentee ballots show up, Waukesha County Clerk Kathleen Novack said Thursday.

State law requires clerks to count absentee ballots that arrive by the Friday after an election as long as they are postmarked the day of the election.

The number of outstanding ballots is more than enough to alter the outcome of the race.

Neylon, a Village of Pewaukee window cleaning business owner, received 2,003 votes to outpoll Village of Pewaukee Police Chief Ed Baumann, who received 1,973 votes, according to unofficial complete returns.
