The more votes are counted, the more Trump’s lead from election night melts away …
The US President does not seem to want to admit it, is going to court in several US states: Either to stop the counting or to request a recount.
But who actually pays the extra work?
It depends: The right to vote in the USA is determined individually by each state – therefore there are many different regulations for the recounting of votes.
► Usually they are always counted again when the result is particularly tight or when it is requested by an inferior candidate, for example. They can also order dishes.
Depending on who requests the recount, there may be costs for the initiators.
In the state of Wisconsin, where the Donald Trump campaign team wants to recount the votes, the president would probably have to raise several million dollars for this. The reason: According to preliminary results, his opponent Joe Biden has more than the threshold of 0.25 percentage points ahead.
Some states will pay the cost if a recount changes the election result.
But mostly the results change only slightly. Four years ago in Wisconsin all votes were counted anew. Election winner Trump increased his lead over Hillary Clinton by 131 votes. In the 2020 election, current numbers see Joe Biden in the lead in Wisconsin with more than 20,000 votes.
Is Trump worth every dollar?
