LANSING, Mich. (WLUC) - Results from the presidential election in Michigan have taken another step toward becoming official.

As of Wednesday morning, all Michigan counties have voted to certify the results of the Nov. 3 election. All 83 bipartisan boards of county canvassers have reviewed and certified results.

Two Republicans on the Wayne County Board of Canvassers are trying to rescind their vote to certify the county’s presidential election results, WDIV-TV reports. However, their actions Tuesday night are still on the books.

Next, the Board of State Canvassers is scheduled to meet Monday to issue final certification. That meeting will be open to the public. Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson says more details will be released soon.

President-elect Joe Biden is the projected winner of Michigan’s 16 electoral college votes as the unofficial state results show him with a 146,000 vote lead over President Donald Trump. The president continues to make unverified claims on Twitter about fraud in Michigan.
