Some are urging Hillary Clinton's campaign to call for a recount of vote totals in several states, including Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. 

CNN is reportingthat computer scientists have found evidence that vote totals in three states could have been hacked. Their findings were presented to top Clinton aides last Thursday. 

They believe there is a voting trend that shows Clinton performed worse in counties that relied on electronic voting machines compared to paper ballots.

The article claims Clinton received 7%  fewer votes in some counties that relied on electronic voting machines. 

The group says they have not found any specific evidence of hacking, but say this pattern needs to be looked at by an independent review.

TODAY'S TMJ4 is looking into these claims and will have updates later today.
