LANSING, MI (MPRN)-- The estimated cost of recounting all the votes in Michigan’s presidential election continues to rise.
State officials plan to charge Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein almost a million dollars to conduct the recount.
If Stein carries through with plans to demand a recount, state will demand a check for $973,250. That’s higher than previous numbers, based on $125 per precinct.
Fred Woodhams of the Michigan Bureau of Elections says the number grew because of the high number of absentee ballots to be counted.
