Darn that human error, anyway!

Last week's Supreme Court election was not Waukesha County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus's first encounter with what she termed "human error."

Published in several newspapers this week, sample ballots promoting Tuesday's contest between James Dwyer and Dan Vrakas include a mark signaling a vote for Dwyer.

 

The red-faced county clerk, #cc0033">Kathy Nickolaus, said the gaffe occurred when her office sent some newspapers the same sample ballots that had been marked and used to test voting machines.

 

"It was just a human error," she said. "We caught it, but we didn't catch it fast enough."
