Wisconsin to set timeline for recount

Wisconsin to set timeline for recount

He added that the campaign is aware that the margin of victory in MI exceeds "well exceeds the largest margin ever overcome in a recount".

Green Party candidate Jill Stein is calling for a recount in key states, and has raised some $3 million for that goal.

Should the results for Trump hold in all three states, as expected, the president-elect would have 306 electoral votes to 232 for Democrat Hillary Clinton. It takes 270 to be elected president.

In the lead-up to the election, he made numerous claims that the election was "rigged" to favour his Democratic Party rival, Ms Clinton.

Caroline Adams of Kingston voted for Clinton. Clinton, however, maintains a more than 2 million vote advantage in the popular vote count.

Green Party's Jill Stein wants to recount the election results in Pennsylvania.

The AP, which called Democrat Hillary Clinton the victor in all three states, said its vote count operation found no significant differences between the county-by-county vote totals and those released statewide on election night in California and Virginia.

So far, Stein has only officially filed for a recount in Wisconsin, although she plans to ask for recounts in MI and Pennsylvania as well.

The Wisconsin Elections Commission voted unanimously Monday to approve the recount timeline. There has been no evidence of widespread tampering or hacking that would change the results of the presidential contest, and for good reason, experts said.

Her campaign's general counsel, Marc Elias, said there was no evidence to conclude the election had been sabotaged, but "we have an obligation to the more than 64 million Americans who cast ballots for Hillary Clinton to participate in ongoing proceedings to ensure that an accurate vote count will be reported".

As of Wednesday, Trump was declared the victor of Wisconsin and Pennsylvania - and he held a lead of almost 11,000 votes in MI, where the final results should be announced on Monday.

"It may not be 22,177", said Thomsen in reference to the number of votes Trump secured over Clinton on November 8.

Reince Priebus told "Fox News Sunday" that Clinton'steam "cut a deal" with Trump's team specifying that once The Associated Press called the race in favor of one candidate, the other would call within 15 minutes to concede. Under state policy, the recount will be conducted by hand.

She has also filed suit in the commonwealth, alleging that the election was "illegal".

Stein's Wisconsin recount request, and lawsuit, included an affidavit from University of MI computer scientist J. Alex Halderman who said a hand recount is the only way to determine whether there could have been a cyberattack that affected the results. He argued that records stored in electronic voting equipment could have been manipulated in an attack. Assuming for a second that what he says is true, that he won the popular vote, then, a recount is certainly needed. Benjamin John of Mifflinburg voted for Trump.

Stein, too, hasn't provided evidence of voting irregularities.

"Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein says she would support efforts to uncover possible voter fraud in additional states, if necessary".

"This is something that has never been filed in Pennsylvania, ever", Otter said.
