Greenfield -  More than 400 ballots that had been counted in the Nov. 8 election were not turned in to Milwaukee County with the rest of the ballots on election night.

The ballots were discovered during the Presidential recount. The ballots are from wards 1, 3 and 12, according to a statement by City Clerk Jennifer Goergen.

"Poll workers in these wards did not properly package the ballots at the end of election day for transport to Milwaukee County," the statement said.

"These ballots had been counted by the voting machines on election day and had been included in the city’s election night voting results," it said.

In the future, poll workers will hand count ballots post-election to make sure the number of voted ballots packaged for transport match the voting machine total, according to the statement.

Recount information is posted by the Milwaukee County Election Commission Board of Canvass on Wisconsin Election Commission’s website at elections.wi.gov
