MADISON, Wis. (WTAQ) - With almost nine percent of the statewide recount finished, Supreme Court Justice David Prosser extended his lead by eight votes.

Almost 320 of the state’s 3,600-plus voting wards had completed their recounts in the first two days of the tally.

As of noon Friday, the state Government Accountability Board had reviewed those results. Prosser had an unofficial total of almost 55,000 votes to around 43,000 for challenger JoAnne Kloppenburg.

The new recount turned up 74 fewer votes than what was originally reported in the county’s canvasses.

Prosser led by 7,316 votes after the canvasses. Friday’s figures give him a lead of 7,324, with almost 1.4 million ballots still to be counted.

County clerks have been urged to work weekends if necessary, so the recount can be finished by May 9th. If it doesn’t look like it will be done by then, the board will ask a judge for an extension.
