Hoyer still winner of La Crosse County Board seat after recount

La Crosse, WI (WXOW) -

A recount Wednesday saw no changes in the outcome of a race for a seat on the La Crosse County Board.

La Crosse County Clerk Ginny Dankmeyer said that Kevin Hoyer won the District 24 seat by two votes, 299-297, over incumbent Leon Pfaff.

The La Crosse County Board of Canvassers met Wednesday morning at the County Administrative Center to complete the recount. 

A recount petition was filed Friday by Pfaff, who'd served on the board since 2004, requesting a double check of the votes. Dankmeyer says the recount can be good for those unsure how their vote impacts a race.

"You're ballot counts," Dankmeyer said. "Absolutely nothing changed. Everything that happened on election night is the same as what it was. So it's confidence to the voters that when you cast your ballot, it's being counted properly. There's nothing interfering with the machines, they're not encoded improperly."

District 24 encompasses parts of the townships of Farmington, Hamilton, Holland, and Onalaska.
