The Government Accontability Board is preparing for three recounts following the state's Primary Election last week.

 
"We are planning for a recount," GAB spokesman Reid Magney said.
 
The three likely recounts would take place in the 6th Congressional District race between Glenn Grothman and Joe Liebham, as well as the 15th Senate District and the 87th Assembly District.
 
The candidates will have three days to decide on whether to request a recount once all the results are in, either Tuesday or Wednesday.
 
"The recount could begin within two days," Magney explained. "By the end of the week, we should know."
