American election recount ends in Michigan, continues in Wisconsin




The move by Green Party candidate Jill Stein ordering a recount of votes in the just concluded U.S elections is making headway after Michigan concluded a recount of presidential votes.

Vote counting was allowed after a judge lifted an order that forced a statewide review of millions of ballots.

According to reports, the recount in Michigan lasted three days in more than 20 of the state’s 83 counties some of which hadn’t planned to start until later.

Federal Judge Mark Goldsmith said Wednesday he must follow a decision by the Michigan appeals court, which found that Jill Stein couldn’t seek a recount.

She got 1 percent of the state vote and presented no evidence of fraud. Republican Donald Trump narrowly won.

Meanwhile, a recount is also ongoing in Wisconsin, and Stein is seeking one in Pennsylvania. Trump won those states, too.
