Election Recount? What Does It All Mean?

Election Recount? What Does It All Mean?

Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein's efforts to recount votes in Pennsylvania would bring significantly more challenges than in the other two states where she is pursuing a recount, Wisconsin and MI, according to CBS News.

Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein's effort to have the presidential election votes recounted in three states may have hit a snag. The Clinton campaign announced its plans to participate in the process to ensure the recount "proceeds in a manner that is fair to all sides".

It comes after recount efforts are underway in Wisconsin, formally requested by the Green Party's Jill Stein.

Trump, who trails Clinton with about two million popular votes, claimed that he won the popular votes, alleging that millions of people voted illegally.

"Hillary Clinton conceded the election when she called me just prior to the victory speech and after the results were in", Trump tweeted Sunday.

News of a potential Pennsylvania recount follows word on Friday that the Wisconsin Election Commission had received Stein's recount petition for the state.

Stein said volunteers will also need to take a photo of the affidavit once it's all filled out and email it to her recount team.

The victor of the popular vote has lost in presidential elections four times before, but some of Clinton's supporters have argued that her large lead and likely victory in the popular vote should force politicians to reconsider the electoral college system. She has raised more than $6 million for the effort, which will now turn to MI and Pennsylvania, where there are deadlines in the coming week.

A senior Donald Trump adviser called Hillary Clinton's decision to join a recount effort "incredible" and noted that the president-elect has not ruled out pursuing a criminal investigation into his former Democratic rival.

She added, "The idea that we are going to drag this out now where the president-elect has been incredibly magnanimous to the Clintons and to the Obamas is pretty incredible".

OECD's Economic Outlook could offer support to a growing number of governments, including the upcoming Donald Trump-led U.S. administration, looking to fire up growth with tax cuts.

Only 270 electoral votes were needed to win the election. Marian Schneider, Pennsylvania's deputy secretary for elections and administration, told NBC in October that there's little chance of hacking the vote totals, because the computers used to program voting machines are not connected to the Internet.

While there is no evidence that voter fraud was committed in any state, that didn't stop Trump, who also tweeted that there was "serious voter fraud" in Virginia, New Hampshire and California.

"The thing we are most concerned about, and that means the most to us, is the integrity and credibility of the election system and election process in the great state of Alabama".

Wisconsin election officials are expected to meet Monday to discuss a possible timeline for a recount of the state's presidential election.
