Wisconsin’s 72 counties have done their job, for now, with the 2020 election.
The state’s Elections Commission yesterday verified the voter canvases from all 72 counties in the state. The Elections Commission will now move to certify the vote. The only thing that could delay that is a recount.
Based on those cavasses, Democrats Joe Biden and Kamala Harris defeated President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence by 20,612 votes.
The Trump campaign has indicated that it plans to request a recount, and must file a request with the Wisconsin Elections Commission by 5 p.m. Wednesday, in order to initiate that process. The Commission reported Monday that the projected cost of a statewide recount would be just under 8 million dollars, for which the Trump campaign will be liable.
