Green Party candidate Jill Stein is taking the necessary steps in Pennsylvania to get a recount of votes cast during the 2016 presidential election. A recount will begin Thursday in Wisconsin after Stein raised money to pay for the costs. Stein is also expected to file for a recount in Michigan.

All three states have historically voted Democrat, but this year voted in favor of Republican Donald Trump.
