Wisconsin completed the partial recount Sunday, which increased the leadership of President-elect Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential election by an additional 87 votes before Tuesday as the state prepares to verify the results.
President Trump has vowed to challenge the outcome in court before the recount is completed. He spent $ 3 million to force the recalculation.

“The Wisconsin recount isn’t about counting mistakes, it’s about locating people who voted illegally, and that case will take place on Monday or Tuesday after the recount is complete,” Trump wrote on Twitter on Saturday. “We found a lot of illegal votes. Stay with us!”
Dane County was the second and last county to complete the recount and reported 45 votes to Trump. Milwaukee County, another large and overwhelmingly liberal county in the state targeted by Trump’s paid recount, announced its results on Friday, increasing Biden by 132 votes.
Overall, the two counties barely moved Biden’s profits of about 20,600 votes, so the winner grew by a net 87 votes.
Democratic lawyer Marc Elias celebrated the news on Sunday.
“Trump will be the first presidential candidate in history to lose the recount in two different states. Trump and his allies will remain in post-election lawsuits 1-39,” Elias wrote. Twitter.
The certification is conducted by the Democratic chairman of the Wisconsin Electoral Commission, which is bipartisan.
The Wisconsin Voters Alliance Conservative Group has already filed a lawsuit against state election officials to block verification of the results. He makes a number of claims from Trump. Governor Tony Evers’ attorneys have asked the state Supreme Court to dismiss the action. Evers, a Democrat, says the complaint is a “confusion of legal distortions” that uses factual untruths to try to deprive millions of Wisconsin residents of voting rights.

Another lawsuit filed over the weekend by Wisconsin resident Dean Mueller alleges that ballot papers placed in crates are illegal and unaccountable.
Trump’s lawyers complained about the missing ballot papers, where voters considered themselves “indefinitely closed,” allowing them to cast their absences without presenting a photo ID; ballot papers with two different colored certification envelopes, indicating that a poll worker could have helped fill it out; and missing ballot papers that do not have a separate written record for their application, such as votes for personal absences.
