No surprise here.
386 unsealed ballots from a Milwaukee neighborhood were discovered Tuesday during the presidential recount in Wisconsin.
The Executive Director for the Milwaukee Election Commission response to the blunder was “it seems like it was a human error on Election Day,”.
Well, at least the Executive Director let us know it was a human who made a mistake and not an alien from space.
What a joke, there’s never any accountability from election officials the only thing we keep hearing is oops.
The 386 uncounted ballots were found on the fourth day of the recount. The city’s top elections official, Claire Woodall-Vogg, said not counting the 386 ballots on Nov. 3 was due to an error by new election inspectors. https://t.co/2PgaqdqAnq

Fox News covered the mishap and added these details:
Nearly 400 absentee ballots from Milwaukee, Wis. were not opened by Election Day, a recount paid for by President Trump’s team found.
The mistake was due to human error, the city’s election officials announced.
President-elect Joe Biden won Wisconsin by 20,600 votes. Trump had paid for a recount in just Milwaukee and Dane counties, the counties with the most votes for Biden.
The campaign paid $3 million dollars for the partial recount, as mandated by state law, hoping to discover and reject ballots with missing addresses allegedly filled by election officials.

TMJ 4 News wasn’t quiet and added this:
386 unopened ballots from a south side Milwaukee neighborhood were discovered Tuesday morning during the ongoing presidential recount, elections officials say.
“It seems like it was a human error on Election Day,” Claire Woodall-Vogg, Executive Director for the Milwaukee Election Commission, told reporters.
“All of the unopened ballots were on the bottom, with all of the open certificate envelopes on top,” Woodall-Vogg said. “And knowing how thorough we are at Central Count, I have no doubt that they brought these ballots up to the table saying that they were complete, not indicating to anyone that half of the ward was missing.”
