    The Green Party's presidential nominee Jill Stein will file for a recount of election results in the US states of Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania, a campaign press release said.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Stein is currently raising money for the recount effort. In Wisconsin alone, filing for a recount will cost $1.1 million, and it has to be done by November 25.

    "Today, the Stein/Baraka campaign announced their intent to file for a recount of votes in the battleground states of Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania, leading a multi-partisan effort to check the accuracy of the machine-counted vote tallies in these states in order to ensure the integrity of our elections," the release stated on Wednesday.

    Stein cited reported hacks into voter and party databases as reasons Americans are wondering if the election results can be trusted.

    President-elect Donald Trump won in both Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, but the race in Michigan is still too close to call even though the election was more than two weeks ago.

    Stein did not receive more than 1.5 percent of the vote in any of these states.
