Hillary Clinton’s campaign is joining the recount following the suspicion of hacker manipulation in 3 key states: Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania. The reason for the suspicion is that Clinton received more votes in manual voting stations rather than computerized stations.

Last night (Saturday), Hillary Clinton’s campaign decided to join the recount efforts in 3 key states.

In a post written by the campaign’s general counsel Marc Elias, he explained the steps that will be taken by the campaign in order to examine the claims that results were hacked and changed in the states of Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania.

Elias explains that the margin of votes in favor of President-elect Donald Trump in these states is 107 thousand votes, a very small difference between the nominees.

He added that they have “not uncovered any actionable evidence of hacking or outside attempts to alter the voting technology” as was discovered by the Green Party candidate Jill Stein. However, Elias stated that Clinton’s campaign has joined the recount efforts with the help of professional analysts. “Since the day after the election we have had lawyers and data scientists and analysts combing over the results to spot anomalies that would suggest a hacked result,” he wrote.

Clinton’s campaign hopes that the recount will lead to a change in the outcome of the elections, a possibility if the electoral votes of all 3 states end up on her side. Currently, Trump has 290 electoral votes to Clinton’s 232 but the 3 states hold a total of 46 electoral votes. In the two weeks since election, Clinton leads the popular vote by over 2 million votes.
