Milwaukee, Wisconsin: After President Donald Trump requested a vote recount for the US election, President-elect Joe Biden saw a small net increase in votes. The new vote count was certified by Milwaukee county in Wisconsin on Friday.
The Milwaukee County Board of Canvassers announced the final vote count results Friday night. Biden received a net gain of 132 votes. The final vote count being Donald Trump with 134,482 votes and Biden receiving 317,527.
After the recount ended, the Milwaukee county clerk, George Christenson, said: “The recount demonstrates what we already know: that elections in Milwaukee county are fair, transparent, accurate and secure.”
Trump campaign’s response
However, the Trump campaign gave 2 objections which made 27,000 ballots segregated. The campaign objected to more than 25,000 absentee ballots cast by people who identified themselves as “indefinitely confined,”. That means, it allowed them to vote absentee due to fears of the pandemic.
The Trump campaign objects the ‘curing’ done in 2,197 ballots. Curing is a legal action in which an election official helps the voter to fill up the missing information that the voter has left out. The different ink left on the ballot by the voter and the election official makes it identifiable in which ballots are cured.
The Trump campaign has given a signal that they will be going to appeal the certification decision because of the segregated votes, according to the Milwaukee county’s clerk office.
The county of Dane in Wisconsin projects to certify their results by Sunday. This is because they are still working hard to count all the votes.
Trump is still certain that voter fraud is happening this election even though there is plenty of evidence against this. “The 1,126,940 votes were created out of thin air. I won Pennsylvania by a lot, perhaps more than anyone will ever know.” This is what he tweeted today.
The media projects that Biden will be the final winner in Wisconsin and it will be a blue state.
