KAUKAUNA, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News) Election officials in Kaukauna have a mess on their hands, after 130 people received the wrong ballots for a county board contest on Tuesday. Those voters were supposed to get ballots for the 13th District seat on the Outagamie County Board. Instead they were given ballots for the 10th District race.
Leroy Van Asten defeated Jason Fischer 188-to-140 for the 13th District post. Kevin Behnke won by 100 votes for the other seat.
Kaukauna City Clerk Sue Duda tells WLUK T-V in Green Bay that she's still trying to figure out what happened and why. Things could be sorted out in the next week, when all the ballots are canvassed and the results are verified.
Fischer was the first to notice the mistake. He told the T-V station that might have to seek a recount and then possibly go to court to have the results overturned, and a new election ordered.
