(LawNewz) In St. Croix, Wisconsin, an observer said five out of nine recount machines had broken seals. The website for presidential candidate Jill Stein published pictures of two on Friday, but how this might affect the final ballot tally remains completely unclear for now. Actually, the statement under the Stein Campaign’s recount observer section didn’t provide much information at all. It simply said:
Five of the nine machines being used in the recount have tampered seals. Photos of two are attached. Photo of seal, followed by photo of serial number.
We’ve reached out to the Wisconsin Elections Commission and the Stein campaign for a better explanation. As for the pictures, you can see those below. Note the third, which depicts a seal that seems to say “Removal of Label Voids Warranty.”
