Waukesha County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus Trashes Vote count Again!!!!

This is one of those OMG moments, again, from Waukesha County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus. Why she didn’t wait to screw things up this bad in November is anyone’s guess. Does what you see here instill any kind of confidence, or that your vote will ever being counted? Nickolaus is a train wreck.

Brookfield Patch: Waukesha County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus said her plans to directly upload results from local government election machine packs failed to work, causing hand-tabulation and delays in releasing results, according to this report from reporter Laurel Walker, who was at the County Administration Building last night. Nickolaus faces challenge to her re-election bid on the November ballot.

The results, however, were tabulated by a Patch writer who added the numbers from voting machine tapes at the Waukesha County Administration Building.

The Waukesha County clerk's office, which said it would post local results online, posted few results, and asked the media and political campaigns to hand-count, using voting machine printouts taped to the walls around a room.

Nickolaus may have a future as an election consultant in Uzbekastan.
What a joke. This passes beyond incompetence into sheer insanity. You have to wonder what other undiscovered disasters are sitting around in the Clerk's office?
