The recount of the votes cast by voters in the presidential elections will be carried out in two counties of Wisconsin at the request of the headquarters of American leader Donald Trump.
The Wisconsin Board of Elections, after much debate on the evening of November 18, agreed to issue a recount order in Milwaukee and Dane counties. Prior to that, Trump’s headquarters transferred $ 3 million to the local authorities, which should cover the costs of this part.
Counties will begin recounts on November 20 and must complete by December 1. Joe Biden beat Trump in Wisconsin by 20,608 votes. At the same time, in Milwaukee and Dane, he was supported by more than twice as many people as the current president.
Earlier, the Wisconsin authorities estimated the costs of a possible recount of all votes. The election commission has calculated that the total amount in this case will be $ 7.9 million.
Prior to this, it was reported that Trump’s headquarters dropped most of the requirements in the lawsuit, which was aimed at challenging the results of the presidential election in Pennsylvania. The claim was filed in a new wording.
Presidential elections were held in the United States on November 3. The counting of votes and the proceedings on this issue are still ongoing. According to the media, the candidate from the Democratic Party of the United States, Joe Biden, received the necessary electoral votes to win, thus beating Trump. He has already proclaimed himself US President-elect.
Trump, in turn, said that Biden was quick to call himself the country’s new leader. He pointed out that the elections are not officially over yet, and the results will be appealed in court.
