“ The list below shows answers to common questions regarding recounts in Wisconsin.[1]

Does state law require automatic recounts?

No.

When must an automatic recount be completed?

There are no automatic recounts in this state.

Can a recount be requested?

Yes, the recount can be requested within three business days of the county canvass except for presidential election recounts, which must be requested on the first business day following the canvass. The margin required is 40 votes in a race with fewer than 4,000 votes or 1% in a race with more than 4,000 votes. No margin is required to request the recount of a ballot measure. The deadline for completion is within 13 days of the order for the recount.”

The only laws that matter are those decided by the SCOTUS.

Even Scott Walker said a recount in Wisconsin was pointless because the margin was too big to overcome.

I read that it will cost $2M for Trump to request a recount. The recount in 2016 netted Trump 131 votes.

Hold Wisconsin and Michigan. Then all we need is Nevada and it's a wrap.

I'm sure there will be a recount and nothing will change.

Maybe the goal of the recount/attack on election legitimacy isn't so much about changing the numbers.

Maybe it's to set the stage for why the GOP-controlled WI legislature has to protect their voters from massive fraud by appointing a slate of electors that don't represent the 'official vote totals,' which of course are bogus, but the will of the people of Wisconsin (as expressed by their elected legislature).

Not a sermon, just a thought.

ABC News just called MI for Biden (the senate seat there also looks like it will stay blue). Arizona looks like hail mary territory (at the best) for Trump.

Unless there’s some shenanigans afoot in Nevada, it’s looking like President Joe.

No. Don't look into the light of that glimmer of hope. It's a phantasm that will haunt you.

Oh gosh, I looked. It's wonderful!
(Oh, no.)
