US Elections 2016: Hillary Clinton Urged To Challenge Election Results
It seems that the citizens of America are still not over the results of the US Presidential election 2016. A growing number of intellects and activists are calling US authorities to audit or recount the vote in key states like Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, reports The Guardian.
Presently, the coalition, which is urging Clinton's campaign members to join the fight, will be preparing a report detailing the specific concerns to federal authorities and the congressional committee, early next week.
The 18 - page document focuses on concerns about the results in the key states of Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. "I'm interested in verifying the vote," said Dr. Barbara Simons, an adviser to the US election assistance commission and expert on electronic voting. "We need to have post-election ballot audits."
Meanwhile, another group of analysts, headed by John Bonifaz, founder of National Voting Rights Institute, and Professor Alex Halderman, is participating in a push for review, stressing the point on the security breach.
Although no evidence of hacking was found, a group of activists has informed John Podesta, the campaign chairman of Hillary Clinton that the presidential candidate received 7% lesser votes in the counties that relied on electronic voting machines, reported Perez Hilton.
Incidentally, Outagamie County in Wisconsin released an official vote tally on Tuesday morning after it was discovered that more votes were tallied than the ballots actually cast. Dan Solomon, a freelance journalist, who shared the news on Twitter, discovered this.
Unfortunately, while many critics believe that a recount needs to be done, Clinton's campaign official is running out of time if they do not make a decision fast enough. The deadline to file a report in Wisconsin is Friday, for Pennsylvania it is Monday and for Michigan is Wednesday. Clinton needs to speed up the process if she is willing to challenge the results.
