Village of Pewaukee Clerk addresses voting malfunction concerns

There might have been a voting machine error at about 9 a.m. in the Village of Pewaukee, according to voter Paul Provinzano, but Village Clerk Nancy Zastrow said that they are following procedure.

Provinzano told the Journal Sentinel that he inserted his ballot into the machine but the number, 298, did not change.

He alerted Zastrow, who said that although it is possible that the machine malfunctioned somehow, because it made the acceptation beep rather than the rejection beep, she is “98.5%” sure that the vote counted.

The same error might have happened 10 minutes later, and Zastrow’s staff made note of that, as well. Zastrow said that no other errors have happened since then.

“I’ve been in contact with the Government Accountability Board; we’ll figure it out, and every vote will count,” Zastrow said.

Regardless, Zastrow said that she always assigns her poll workers to hand count each vote at the end of the night to ensure that all ballots and their corresponding numbers are correct. It’s essentially a double-check.

“If there’s still a discrepancy at the end of the day (after hand counting), then the count or the state will order a recount and they’ll walk us through that. … If that’s what it takes, then we’ll certainly do that,” Zastrow said.
