Although the votes are still being counted, it appears Jill Stein, the Green Party presidential nominee, received approximately 475,000 votes, or approximately .36% of the total vote. She is therefore the first woman to receive more than .25% of the total vote for President in a general election. Lenora Fulani had been the previous record-holder, polling .237% in 1988.
