A statewide recount of Wisconsin’s presidential vote has wrapped up ahead of schedule.
State election officials certified the results Monday afternoon – a day earlier than expected. Wisconsin Elections Commission administrator Mike Haas called it a remarkable achievement by the state’s county clerks. “The fact that this was done in 10 days is really a credit to those individuals,” he said.
The recount uncovered several hundred votes that were either missed or miscounted on election night. However, the results were still largely the same. Republican president-elect Donald Trump added 131 votes to his margin of victory over Democrat Hillary Clinton, giving him a 22,748 vote lead after the recount. Overall, Trump one Wisconsin’s presidential vote with 1,404,440 votes, while Clinton received 1,382,536 votes.
