US Elections: Wisconsin agrees to statewide recount


Wisconsin's election board has agreed to conduct a statewide recount of votes cast in the presidential race, as requested by Green Party candidate Jill Stein who is seeking similar reviews in two other states where Donald Trump scored narrow wins.

The recount process, including an examination by hand of the nearly three million ballots tabulated in Wisconsin, was expected to begin late next week after Stein's campaign paid the required fee, the Elections Commission said.

The state faces a December 13 federal deadline to complete the recount, which may require canvassers in Wisconsin's 72 counties to work evenings and weekends to finish the job in time, according to the commission.

The recount fee has yet to be determined, the agency said in a statement on its website.
