Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein is pushing for recounts of the vote in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan — three states where Donald Trump narrowly defeated Hilary Clinton.

Stein filed a recount petition last week in Wisconsin. The state is moving forward with that. She has until Wednesday to file a petition in Michigan, which her lawyer says she will do. And in Pennsylvania on Monday, Stein filed a recount lawsuit, alleging that the election there was "illegal."

Stein has raised $6.3 million for the effort.
