Nearly half a million - 456,000 & climbing

As the votes are counted and reported, our numbers are rising. As of today, Monday, November 26th, the total number of votes reported for Jill Stein for President are 455,846. This total does not include several thousand of votes projected but still unreported by state officials. And it does not include write-in votes in several states. When all is said and done, the total reported vote should be between 460,000 and 470,000 nationwide. 

The states with the highest vote percentage for Jill Stein and Cheri Honkala were Maine (1.30%), Oregon (1.03%), Alaska (1.0%), Arkansas (.87%), Idaho, Hawai'i, and West Virginia (each with .70%). California and New York both reported 0.6% of the vote for the Green ticket. 

Overall, this performance means that over one out of three hundred voters voted Green in this election, or .36%. This total is almost exactly three times the performance of the Green ticket in 2008 as measured by vote percentage.
