Hillary Clinton is being urged by expert computer scientists
and election lawyers to call for a recount in three swing states won by
New York has reported.
Persuasive evidence has reportedly been found that shows results in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania may have been manipulated
The group, which includes voting-rights attorney John
Bonifaz and J. Alex Halderman, the director of the University of Michigan Center for Computer
Security and Society, is lobbying Clinton's team privately
before going on the record about their findings.
Their findings apparently show a trend of Clinton
performing worse in counties that relied on electronic voting machines compared
to paper ballots and optical scanners.
Based on this statistical
analysis, Clinton may have been denied as many as 30 000 votes. She lost
Wisconsin by 27 000.
The vote in Michigan has still not been called as the
results were too close - and the 16 electoral votes in the state have not
been given to Trump or Clinton.
Clinton would need to win Michigan and overturn the results in
Wisconsin and Pennsylvania to win the electoral college.
Time is of the essence if Clinton is to pursue challenging
the results. The deadline in Wisconsin to file for a recount is Friday; in
Pennsylvania, it’s Monday; and Michigan is next Wednesday.
Both Trump and Clinton have declined to respond to questions
regarding the report, CNN says.
