The Wisconsin vote recount now has a deadline of December 12


The  timeline for the Wisconsin electoral recount triggered by Green Party candidate Jill Stein has been approved.

FOX 6 Milwaukee reports clerks have been urged to submit results by 8 p.m. December 12 so it can be finalized the next day. 

However, if the recounts are not paid for by tomorrow, the recount will not happen.

A crowdfunding page hosted by the Stein campaign  shows  roughly $6.3 million has been raised for the recount as of 11:20 a.m. Eastern time. The Wisconsin recount will cost $1.1 million, according to the campaign's estimates.

President-elect Donald Trump has criticized recount efforts repeatedly on Twitter.

Michigan announced on Monday it had officially certified Donald Trump as the winner by just over 10,000 votes, Politico reports. Trump is the first Republican candidate for president to win Michigan since George W. Bush in 1988.

Stein's campaign also plans to contest the Michigan results. It has until Wednesday to do so, which is estimated to cost about $800,000.
