Michigan confirmed Joe Biden's victory

Former vice president officially received 16 votes of the electorate.

On Monday, representatives of the Michigan Election Commission testified to Joe Biden’s victory in the state with 154,000 more votes than his rival President Trump.

Members of the state election verification committee, which includes two Republicans and two Democrats, confirmed the results of the presidential election. Three commissioners voted for it, while one abstained.

Trump’s allies and John James, who had fought for a Senate seat from the Republican Party, called on the commission to postpone voting by two weeks to audit votes in Wayne County, which includes Detroit.

According to Michigan State law, Biden is a candidate for all 16 votes. Biden is 2.8 percent ahead of the incumbent U.S. president – more than in other states where Trump is contesting the results – Georgia, Arizona, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania.
