Talking Points Memo: Wis. Election Official: ‘There Will Be Changes’ In Vote Numbers

April 7, 2011- An important thing to keep in mind for the Wisconsin Supreme Court race, in which liberal-backed challenger JoAnne Kloppenburg has declared victory with a razor-thin 204-vote lead over incumbent conservative Justice David Prosser in the Associated Press count: It's not over yet — and in fact, the totals could change as the counties review their numbers.

Kevin Kennedy, director of the state Government Accountability Board — which oversees elections — spoke to reporters Wednesday. The Wisconsin State Journal reports:

The unofficial totals showing Kloppenburg with a narrow lead are "very good numbers," Kennedy said, but they will change.

"There will be changes because this is a very human-driven process," Kennedy said. "We expect mistakes…Our goal will be to make sure every ballot is counted and every discrepancy on election day is accounted for."
