(Reuters) - A U.S. judge in Pennsylvania on Monday rejected Green Party candidate Jill Stein's request for a recount of the state's ballots in last month's presidential election and an examination of voting machines for evidence of hacking.

The decision came on the same day that Wisconsin election officials expect to complete that state's recount, which was also initiated by Stein, the fourth-place finisher behind President-elect Donald Trump.
