A “machine issue” in New Berlin is delaying the final vote count in Waukesha County, according to the county clerk’s office. 

Wards 4, 5, 6, and 7 have been delayed due to the issue. The clerk’s office says all other wards have been reported. 

The race for governor is currently razor thin with both Gov. Scott Walker and Tony Evers holding 49 percent of the vote with 85 percent of the vote counted. 

A broken USB stick hindered the count of 1,500 to 2,000 ballots in New Berlin. The ballots are being recounted and should be reported soon.
