The votes are in and it has officially been declared that Donald Trump has won the state of Michigan, making him the first Republican to do so since George H. W. Bush in the 1988 presidential election, and pushing him to 306 electoral college votes.
A statement on the Michigan Secretary of State website says Trump won by 10,704 votes after results from all 83 of the state’s county clerks were counted and certified:
“Many people have asked about Michigan’s process for counting ballots and certifying election results. Please be aware that all 1,521 Michigan cities and townships completed ballot counting and reported unofficial results by the morning of Wednesday, Nov. 9. The county canvassing boards, as they do after every election, then began their work to review and certify the results from each precinct. The detailed county canvassing process ensures that Michigan residents can have full confidence in the accuracy and integrity of the results.”
