Earlier in the day, Stein's campaign said that she has reached her funding goal of more than $4.7 million to carry out recounts in two of three "battleground" states that she wanted to contest, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania.
"For us, to raise that money is significant because we do not take money from corporations or from political PACs [political action committees]," the Green Party representative noted. "This comes from the American people."
The representative explained that the decision to seek a recount is about the integrity of voting in the United States.
"[I]t needs to be done," he added.
President-elect Donald Trump won in both, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania.
Stein did not receive more than 1.5 percent of the vote in any of the three states.
