The election commission in Wisconsin has received a request for a recount of the votes in the state narrowly won by Donald Trump more than two weeks ago, according to a BBC report.
The request was filed by Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein.
Dr Stein has also pledged to file vote recounts in Michigan and Pennsylvania.
A win by Hillary Clinton in Wisconsin alone would not overturn Mr Trump’s lead as it provides only 10 votes in the crucial electoral college that gave him victory in the 8 November election.
However, wins in Wisconsin, Michigan (16 electoral votes) and Pennsylvania (20 electoral votes) would have clinched the presidency for Hillary Clinton.
