Jill Stein Files for Vote Recount in Wisconsin

"This is a commitment that Greens have expressed - that we stand for election integrity, that we support voting systems that respect our vote".

George Martin, who sits on the Green Party's coordinating committee, said Stein is seeking the recount because of concerns about differences between the votes and exit polls, as well as worries of tampering with voting machines.

On Wednesday she announced she would demand recounts in three states: Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and MI.

"Of the 14 Wisconsin jurisdictions with more than 30,000 registered voters, 13 (including Milwaukee, Madison, Green Bay, Kenosha) use ballot marking devices", says Pamela Smith, president of Verified Voting, a non-partisan group dedicated to election security.

For that, she would need Stein's other two proposed recounts to fall her way as well.

"After a divisive and painful presidential race, reported hacks into voter and party databases and individual email accounts are causing many American to wonder if our election results are reliable. So that we can trust that our votes are counted". "There's not something we're pointing (at) to say that 'this is wrong in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania.' What we are saying is there is enough peripheral evidence to warrant that our system should be investigated". However, he says without the machines being examined, there would be no way to tell.

The Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump narrowly won the Wisconsin by a narrow margin of 22,000 votes. However, the inclusion of MI is a little less clear. The deadline to ask for a recount is Wednesday.

The only way to be sure of the result is to count the paper ballots.

Stein has not said that her efforts are in support of Democrat Hillary Clinton but noted, "these recounts are part of an election integrity movement to attempt to shine a light on just how untrustworthy the U.S. election system is".

"You may potentially have the state electoral votes at stake if it doesn't get done by then", said Haas.

Ms Stein's fundraising website added: 'These recounts are part of an election integrity movement to attempt to shine a light on just how untrustworthy the United States election system is'.

Wisconsin could be at risk of missing a December 13 deadline to certify its 10 electoral votes if municipal clerks can't complete an expected recount by then. In a New York Magazine article, they claim based on statistical analysis that manipulation may have taken place in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and MI, but the group has not found proof that any manipulation has occurred.

Stein is still petitioning for recounts in MI and Pennsylvania - which must be filed before Wednesday next week in order to be eligible. The state has never performed a presidential recount.

The Clinton and Trump campaigns have not commented on the recount effort.

"Although we are certain that this is going to create numerous challenges and significant frustration, we thank you for your commitment to election administration in Wisconsin", the election commission's Ross Hein wrote to clerks in a memo.

Closing Clinton's gap of 27,000 votes is unlikely, Burden said. Even if we focus only on Wisconsin, the effect disappears when we weight our results by population. "When we included all counties but weighted the regression by the number of people living in each county, the statistical significance of the opposite effects in Wisconsin and Texas both evaporated".

If the recounts don't happen, what will become of all that money? Did she prey on them by providing a covert false sense of hope within the Clinton-supporting community?
