The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports

Even with 99% of the vote counted, fewer than 600 votes - or about 0.04% of ballots - separated the two candidates. That would suggest a recount will be held with so few votes between the two.

According to the AP tally, there are 486 total precincts in populous Milwaukee County, but only 474 have reported vote totals.

The AP said early Wednesday morning that it was missing results from Cudahy, St. Francis and a small portion of West Allis in Milwaukee County. According to results gathered by the Journal Sentinel Tuesday night, Prosser won St. Francis 1,336 votes to 1,241 and won Cudahy 2,468 to 2,313. If that proves to be the case, it would add another 250 votes to Prosser's lead.

St. Francis officials confirmed those results Wednesday morning. Cudahy officials could not yet be reached. The Cudahy and St. Francis results would account for 10 of the 12 missing precincts in Milwaukee County with the other two coming from West Allis.

Here's my quick wrap-up from last night on the Wisconsin supreme court race.
