Six Wisconsin counties finish recounts; margin unchanged


Six Wisconsin counties have finished recounting ballots cast in last month's presidential race, and the margin between winner Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton has not changed.

Clinton and Trump lost 20 votes apiece in the six counties that had finished as of Monday morning.

Trump won Wisconsin by about 22,000 votes. Green Party candidate Jill Stein requested and is paying for the recount, which started last Thursday. She has also requested recounts in Michigan and Pennsylvania.

The Wisconsin Elections Commission says no significant issues have been reported after four full days of recounting. The commission says any changes between canvass results and recount totals have been due to human error.

The Elections Commission says the recount is on track to be done by the state-imposed deadline of 8 p.m. December 12. All states must certify election results by December 13.
