Some concerns have been raised about the integrity of voting machines. The Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein is requesting a recount in Wisconsin, Michigan & Pennsylvania. Democrats are reportedly unlikely to do it due to embarrassment and likely it won't change the outcome anyway. It's up to the Greens to request. Stein needs US$2.5 million by Friday:

It's an interesting thing to do regardless. It's also somewhat complex interaction between state law and federal law as in the Florida recount.

For some more context, some analysts have identified (apparently) a statistical difference in the results between electronic vs. paper based voting in the same states. Perhaps that is down to other factors, but perhaps there is something there. Given what is at stake, a review probably isn't a bad thing.

The vote in Wisconsin is to be audited. Efforts are under way to get a recount in two other states. Democrats are also lobbying electors to break their commitment to vote for Trump. This election is just the gift that goes on giving.

For a first-world country, their voting and electoral processes are incredibly Mickey Mouse.

Is it possible to hack the voting machine to give just enough votes to Trump?

I wonder how many machines there are and how to hack each of them

I don't think the election was rigged, he STILL lost the popular votes. A lot of the states he won on Electoral (Which is all that matters) he won very comfortably.

Well, the green party candidate crowd raised the $2.5m.

Now they need to do it again for the next two states.

This is great - a third party candidate actually made a difference in a U.S election! : ).
