ELKHORN -- Walworth County Clerk Kimberly Bushey is seeking volunteers to serve as tabulators at the upcoming statewide Presidential recount, according to a news release from the clerk's office.

A tabulator counts ballots under the direction of the county clerk and board of canvassers.

Tabulators must be 18 years old. Those interested should e-mail their name, address, telephone number and e-mail address to Kimberly Bushey or stop by the County Clerk’s office, Room 101 at the Walworth County Government Center, 100 W. Walworth Street, Elkhorn, Wisconsin.

The effort comes at the request of Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein, who raised $6 million to recount presidential ballots in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania, three states the Donald Trump won by slim margins.

A group of computer scientists, including John Bonifaz, a voting rights attorney, and J. Alex Halderman, the director of the University of Michigan Center for Computer Security and Society, according to New York Magazine, say the detected discrepencies in vote totals for counties that used computer ballots versus those that used optical scanning machines, like those used in Walworth County.

The recount would have to tilt in favor of Hillary Clinton in all three states to change the Electoral College outcome.
