An election recount observer in St. Croix, Wisconsin is reporting that five out of nine recount machines being used to tabulate ballots had broken seals on them.
Take a look at the pictures below. Pay special attention to the third, which clearly contains a seal which reads:
“Removal of Label Voids Warranty.”

One observer had this to say about the recounts taking place in Wisconsin:
“The clerks and tabulators were amazingly organized, polite, and professional.”
But another observer with the Jill Stein recount team reported this:
“Observers were seated apart from the people counting the votes, so the actual ballots are not visible to observers. The guidelines posted outside of the counting room specified that objections could only be raised by a designated representative but there was no such person at the Door County site. Therefore, no one was eligible to voice objections.”
The recount is far from over in Wisconsin. And there could be additional recounts in both Michigan and Pennsylvania. Donald Trump has not been sworn in yet. He may not be.
