Dane County to Perform Hand Recount of Presidential Votes

Dane County to Perform Hand Recount of Presidential Votes

Jill Stein and the Green Party have paid $3.5 million to the state for a recount of the presidential vote in Wisconsin, out of concern that tabulators or reported vote totals may have been tampered with. Stein and Hillary Clinton sued the state in Dane County Court to require that the recount be done by hand, after state officials announced that each county would have the option to do a hand or machine recount. Judge Valerie Bailey-Rihn refused to require a hand recount. Dane is one of 56 counties so far to agree to a full or partial hand count of the votes. Stein will not appeal the decision.
