Biden adds to vote margin over Trump after Milwaukee County recount

A recount paid for by the Trump campaign of votes cast in Milwaukee County ended on Friday with 132 votes being added to President-elect Joe Biden’s margin of victory. 

The results came in seven days after the recount of nearly 460,000 ballots began, The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported. It ended with boosting Biden’s total by 257 votes, up from 317,270 to 317,527.

Trump’s final tally was raised by 125 votes for a total of 134,482.

Officials in the city of Milwaukee found 386 unopened and uncounted absentee ballots that the Board of Canvassers voted unanimously to be opened and counted, the newspaper noted. An additional 65 ballots were reported as being misplaced on Wednesday however they were not accounted for by Friday.

Milwaukee County Clerk George Christenson last week said observers for Trump were objecting to nearly every ballot pulled to count.
