Clerks and workers doing the ballot counting start the recount in Milwaukee and Dane counties today (Friday).
Officials spent Thursday setting things up for the big job. County canvass boards will manage the process, making decisions on disputed ballots, and following public health guidelines to keep everyone safe from COVID-19. Dane County is live-streaming the work and is doing a hand count, rather than using only machines. Officials with the Wisconsin Elections Commission say nearly 800-thousand ballots will be recounted at the request of the Trump campaign.
