State board: President-elect Donald Trump wins Michigan’s 16 electoral votes
LANSING, Michigan — President-elect Donald Trump has won Michigan’s 16 electoral votes.
The Board of State Canvassers certified President-elect Trump’s 10,704-vote victory on Monday, nearly three weeks after the election. The two-tenths of a percentage point margin out of nearly 4.8 million votes is the closest presidential race in Michigan in more than 75 years.
President-elect Trump’s win in Michigan gives the Republican 306 electoral votes to Democrat Hillary Clinton’s 232.
President-elect Trump is the first Republican presidential nominee to win Michigan since 1988.
Green Party candidate Jill Stein is expected to ask for a recount. She has until Wednesday. President-elect Trump would have seven days to file objections to her request.
