Wisconsin is in the middle of a recount of votes cast in the national election at the request of the Green Party’s former presidential candidate, Jill Stein. Stein is requesting recounts in Michigan and Pennsylvania. The chances of those two recounts happening is still uncertain.  In addition to Stein’s efforts, Clinton voters have rallied in protests around the country since President-elect Trump’s election. Now, some argue that, because Secretary Clinton won the popular vote, she should become president, even though Trump won 306 electoral votes to Secretary Clinton’s 232 . These protesters have put together a petition to make Electoral voters change their ballot to Secretary Clinton before their official voting day on December 19th. Fox News reports that, even though some members of the Electoral College are required to vote for the candidate that won the most popular votes in their state, “‘their vote would still be counted, they would simply pay a small fine’”.
