In Wisconsin, Trump’s margin of victory is just over 22,000 votes.
According to a Friday statement from Michael Haas, an administrator for Wisconsin Election Commission, the recount will begin late next week after the Stein campaign has paid the recount fee. “The state is working under a federal deadline of December 13 to complete the recount,” said the statement. “As a result, county boards of canvassers may need to work evenings and weekends to meet the deadlines.”
Official results from Wisconsin’s 72 counties indicate that 2.975 million votes were cast in the state — Trump won 1.404 million votes to Clinton’s 1.382 million.
Clinton leads the president-elect by 2.2 million votes in the popular vote, as of Saturday morning. The former secretary of state has garnered 64,637,140 votes nationally, compared to Trump’s 62,408,908,
