GREEN BAY (WLUK) --- On Friday, county clerks in Wisconsin and volunteers continued counting ballots for a second day.

Brown County Clerk Sandy Juno said day two ran smoother than day one.

"They got the rhythm, they are developing relationships so things are progressing very well,” said Juno.

More than 130,000 ballots are being recounted in Brown County.

Since the recount started on Thursday, there have been few changes.

Hilary Clinton gained one vote, President-Elect Donald Trump lost one but then gained two, and one ballot was thrown out.

"We had an absentee ballot that should have been rejected that wasn't so we had to take a ballot away. Other than that, for the most part all of the data is coming back the same as it was on election night, the official one,” explained Juno.

In Outagamie County, more than 95,000 ballots are being recounted.

As of Friday, both Trump and Clinton gained one vote in the county.

"The Wisconsin Election Commission wants us to report any discrepancy in detail that occur with 10 ballots or more. We are seeing one ballot here, one ballot there," said O’Bright.

Tabulators in both counties will working through the weekend to meet a December 12th deadline set by the Wisconsin Election Commission.

“It'd be nice if we could get done quicker but every reporting unit is different, and has different concerns. Some go quickly others take a lot longer," said Juno

Trump won the Badger State in the November election by 22,000 votes.
