MILWAUKEE — The city of Milwaukee could have all of its votes counted by 3 a.m, according to Milwaukee County Clerk George Christenson.

This is opposed to an earlier statement that estimated the completion time to be around 5 a.m.

The city of Milwaukee has counted around 140,000 absentee ballots which leaves just a little more than 20,000 to go.

All 11 municipalities that do in-person vote counting have been reported which includes: Brown Deer, Bayside, Cudahy, Fox Point, Glendale, Greenfield, Hales Corners, River Hills, St. Francis, West Milwaukee, and White Fish Bay.

So far three of the eight municipalities that use a central count method have reported their votes including Greendale, Shorewood, and South Milwaukee.

The votes cast in Franklin, Milwaukee, Oak Creek, Wauwatosa, and West Allis are yet to be finalized.
