Election Recount 2016: Celebs Urge Fans to Request Audit of Votes
Celebrities are encouraging fans to demand an audit of votes as the popular vote for Hillary Clinton reaches over two million.
Computer scientists are suggesting that due to cyber threats and the close race between Hillary and president-elect Donald Trump in several states, it gives sufficient cause of a manual recount of paper ballots and an examination of electronic voting machines in states like Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.
This audit may prove that Hillary actually had more votes than Donald.
Celebs are urging their fans to sign the online petition to encourage Hillary Clinton to demand the audit before the request date passes.
Check out some of their tweets below.

I really weighed posting this heavily. I believe in the people’s vote and the voice of the country and though I hate the decision, would never question the election of Donald Trump, even if he didn’t win the popular vote- I would still accept him as the president elect. But. BUT. Something fishy is going on. Enough experts have weighed in now; and so I encourage you to ask for an audit of votes in the following 3 states. Maybe everything was perfectly legal and legit. But also… what if it wasn’t? This from a friend in the know: “A bit of action you can take: Call the department of Justice for an audit of questionable returns from swing states: “Department of Justice is tallying phone calls regarding those who want the 2016 Vote audited in PA, MI & WI. They are starting to recognize there really is something off about the election results as they still come in. Considering everything that is at stake, a vote audit should be done. Please take one minute and call/email the DOJ – Department of Justice: 1-800-253-3931 (press 5) or 202-353-1555 (leave message) or email: firstname.lastname@example.org (CALL, DON’T LEAVE IT TO EMAIL) You can just ask your name to be added to the list requesting the investigation instead of going through the whole thing. Here’s a longer voicemail you can leave if you’d like: But all you have to do is ask your name to be added to the list. “My name is [first last name], I’m calling from [city],[state] to respectfully request you pursue an investigation into voter suppression, Crosscheck abuse, Russian hacking and FBI interference with the 2016 presidential election. Please issue an injunction until a thorough investigation can take place.” The point is to provide the DOJ with numbers so they can say X number of Americans want an injunction. Short, sweet, polite does the trick. I called the 800 number and a nice woman answered and was very polite while I read my statement. It took all of 30 seconds. SHARE THIS WHERE POSSIBLE. COPY AND PASTE. SPREAD THE WORD.” “ A photo posted by Amber Tamblyn (@amberrosetamblyn) on
