Nevada counties to recount presidential race

In Wisconsin, Republicans are alleging that "Jill Stein's recount efforts amount to illegal coordination with Democrat Hillary Clinton".

A judge in Wisconsin has refused to order a recount by hand of ballots cast in the state for the US presidential elections, shooting down a petition by Green Party candidate Jill Stein that the use of automatic tabulating equipment, identified as potential targets of foreign government agents, "risks tainting the recount process".

The estimated cost of recounting all the votes in Michigan's presidential election continues to rise. She expects the process to start Friday.

Wisconsin state law says that it will be up to the individual counties to decide how they will handle the recount.

The Republican Party said a MI recount would cost taxpayers far more than the 973,000 dollars (£782,000) Ms Stein paid when filing her recount petition.

But still, county election officials across Wisconsin were hiring temporary workers, expanding hours and dusting off recount manuals to prepare for the work of retabulating almost 3 million ballots. But he said that after Stein stated that she wanted to challenge the results of those contests, the campaign wanted to oversee the process to ensure that it is conducted accurately and fairly.

The complaint contends that Clinton is the only person who could benefit from a recount and that she illegally helped Stein raise money for the recounts in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and MI.

To which Banerjee said that permission of the government is required even if the army was to conduct a mock trial in the state. The central government and the army rubbished the allegations, saying too much was being read into a routine exercise.

But Stein said in a statement on her website that this effort is not about helping either Trump or Clinton.

Trump won MI by 10,704 votes over Democrat Hillary Clinton.

Bailey-Rihn said there were good reasons to do a hand recount but no legal basis for her to mandate it.

The Michigan Republican Party has come out as one of the recount's strongest critics, with party chair Ronna Romney McDaniel saying the recount is a waste of time and resources.

"This is certainly not Bush v. Gore", said Wisconsin's chief elections administrator Mike Haas. Trump's margin of victory could grow or decrease, but he is still expected to win Michigan's 16 electoral votes. The state Republican Party, which will represent Trump during the recount, estimates the cost will be "astronomical" and will have to cover overtime pay, facility rentals, training, travel and security. He claims voting machines used in some parts of Wisconsin and other states are vulnerable to hacking and could have been manipulated. She had already requested recounts in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
