Wisconsin Rejects Jill Stein’s Hand Recount; She’ll Sue

The Wisconsin Elections Commission has rejected Jill Stein’s request to recount the presidential election ballots by hand, stating on Monday that they will instead conduct the recount electronically. Stein responded that she would sue the state to obtain a hand recount. Wisconsin is the first of three states in which Stein has called for a recount of the presidential election. On Monday, Stein filed a suit to force a recount in Pennsylvania, and plans to file for a recount in Michigan on Wednesday, now that the state’s results have been certified. The Wisconsin Elections Committee’s six members unanimously moved to accept Stein's recount demands, but told Milwaukee's Sentinel-Journal that they doubted the recount would change the results of their state, where Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton by a narrow margin of approximately 22,000 votes.
