Recounts changes outcome in 32nd AD, 45th, 84th unchanged

Republican Tyler August has overtaken Adam Gibbs by three votes in their GOP primary for the 32nd Assembly District following a recount.

August, a legislative aide to the retiring Rep. Tom Lothian, trailed Gibbs, a salesman, by four votes after the original count on Election Night before requesting the recount.

August picked up one vote in the recount of Kenosha County votes. But most of the action was in Walworth County, where August picked up two votes and Gibbs lost four.

Walworth County Clerk Kim Bushey said August picked up one vote because it was improperly rejected on Election Night. With the second vote, the board of canvassers took a second look at a ballot and determined the elector had intended to vote for August.

Gibbs lost three votes after county election officials realized some absentee ballots had been improperly counted Election Night. That required election officials to take all absentee ballots from that reporting unit and randomly select absentee ballots to be pulled out of the final total. Three of the absentee ballots pulled out were for Gibbs, while the fourth was for another candidate.

Gibbs did not immediately return a call from WisPolitics seeking comment on whether he may challenge the results of the recount in district court.

August said Gibbs congratulated him Sunday after the Walworth County recount was completed. But he had not heard from him since to know what his plans may be.

"I'm not sure what he's going to do," August said. "It's certainly his right to do that if that's what he feels he needs to do."

Recounts in two other GOP Assembly primaries did not change the results there.

Town of Clinton Supv. Amy Loudenbeck won the 45th, while fitness club manager Mike Kuglitsch won the 84th.
