The recount is happening! There is just one caveat…read on.
Green Party nominee Jill Stein is pushing for vote recounts in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania, three traditionally Democratic states where Donald Trump did much better than expected on election day. Trump pulled off historic upsets that night in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. Michigan has yet to be called, but he is projected to win there as well.
Stein’s press director made the announcement in a Facebook livestream on Wednesday afternoon. Her campaign is now accepting donations for the effort and calling on supporters to provide $2 million by Friday afternoon. Its statement references “compelling evidence of voting anomalies” and “significant discrepancies in vote totals” in the three states.
The news comes days ahead of the states deadlines to file recount requests. Wisconsin’s deadline is Friday; Pennsylvania’s is Monday and Michigan’s is Wednesday, Nov. 30.

Since the announcement, Stein has raised $425,000 of the $2 million that is required by Friday.
