Karen, Dane County

I observed the recount for wards 1-4 of the City of Fitchburg.Most important was 23 absentee ballots which had not been opened until today, due to clerical error. These ballots were added to the other absentee ballots today, resulting in at least 10 more votes for Clinton and 4 more votes for Trump. Not sure what the other votes were. Nobody announces these types of things; observers have to notice that this is happening and ask about it. I couldn't hear the counts for candidates other than Clinton and Trump; final votes for Clinton were 1839 and Trump was 377.
