VIROQUA -- JoAnne Kloppenburg's vote total increased by 24 after completion of Vernon County's official canvass of votes from the spring general election, Thursday.

Vernon County Clerk Ron Hoff said that a number was been written down incorrectly on a tally sheet on election night, Tuesday, April 5. The canvass showed Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice candidate Kloppenburg picked up 24 votes in Vernon County. Of those, 23 came from an incorrect tally mark and one came from an absentee ballot from overseas.

Kloppenburg defeated incumbent Justice David Prosser Jr., 4,331-3,578 in Vernon County.

Statewide, out of about 1.5 million votes cast, Kloppenburg held a margin of 204 votes before canvassing began, Thursday.

Hoff is a Republican from Coon Valley.
