Jill Stein Will Not Appeal Judge’s Decision

Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein will not be appealing a Wisconsin judge’s ruling that a recount can be done without hand counting every ballot. Stein spokeswoman Margy Levinson said in an email Wednesday that the ruling made Tuesday night in Dane County Circuit Court would not be appealed. Levinson says given the time constraints, they want to focus resources on the recount that begins Thursday. The majority of Wisconsin counties planned to do a hand recount of ballots cast even though the judge’s ruling means they can choose to feed the ballots into tabulation machines to double check the counts.
