MADISON, Wis. (CBS 58) – The Wisconsin Elections Commission is laying out the next steps as the unofficial results from the November 3 election are tallied.

Wisconsin’s chief election official, Meagan Wolfe, released the following statement:

“Wisconsin’s counting and reporting of unofficial results has gone according to law. Our municipal and county clerks have worked tirelessly throughout the night to make sure every valid ballot is counted and reported accurately. Those unofficial results are available on the county clerks’ websites.”

The statement continued to explain beginning on Wednesday, November 4, a three-step process will begin to triple check the results.

“Today, the Wisconsin Elections Commission staff will be standing ready to assist clerks as they start the process of triple-checking the results. This includes randomly selecting 5% of reporting units for voting equipment audits which must occur before results are certified as required by law on December 1.”

More information on the state’s election certification process can be found on the commission’s website.
