Wisconsin begins vote recount in two counties

Wisconsin on Friday began recounts of the presidential race in the state's two biggest and most Democratic counties. It's a longshot bid by President Donald Trump — who paid a required $3 million fee — to undo Joe Biden's victory. Trump, who lost by more than 20,600 votes in Wisconsin, has alleged "mistakes and fraud" in the two counties, though he has produced no evidence to back up his claims. Biden's victory over Trump was fueled by Democrat-heavy Milwaukee and Dane counties, making them ripe targets for Trump to try and discount votes. The counties are home to Milwaukee, the state's most racially diverse city, and Madison, the state Capitol and location of the University of Wisconsin's flagship campus. Combined, Biden won the counties by a more than 2-to-1 margin. The recount brings together hundreds of people at a time when the coronavirus is ravaging Wisconsin, which has been one of the nation's worst COVID-19 hot spots for weeks. One in every 118 people in Wisconsin has tested positive in the past week. To help reduce the risk, both counties rented convention centers so that workers and observers can be properly distanced. In Milwaukee, where the recount will be conducted at the 186,000-square-foot Wisconsin Center, everyone inside was required to wear a mask, pass a temperature screening and maintain appropriate social distancing. Anyone not following those requirements will be ejected. The recounts are being livestreamed. The recounts must be finished by a Dec. 1 deadline. Milwaukee County expects to be finished the day before Thanksgiving, an event widely expected to hasten the spread of the virus. Dane County is planning 16-hour days and wasn't expected to finish before the holiday. Both plan to use machines to recount the ballots, although Dane County started Friday with hand-counting from randomly selected precincts for an audit, as required by law.
