    Second Ohio recount sought

    The Green Party, and Independent candidates in the US Presidential election yesterday sought a second recount in Ohio. The second recount is sought on the grounds that by pre-selecting the 3% sample to manually recount, a breach in US law occurred. Apparently:

    Ohio law requires an elections board to manually recount a randomly selected 3 percent of ballots. If the totals match certified results for those precincts, all the county's votes are then to be machine-counted. If the hand count is off, a county must manually recount all its ballots.
    There have been numerous reports that the Ohio counties did not randomly select the precincts chosen for the 3% recount, and that the areas with the most reports of voting "irregularities" were missed out from the recount.
