The Michigan State Board of Canvassers voted Monday to certify the results of the state's presidential election, in which President-elect Joe Biden prevailed, a major blow to President Donald Trump's withering effort to contest the outcome. NBC News and other major news organizations have projected Biden as the winner in Michigan, where he leads Trump by over 150,000 votes. Trump's allies and lawyers have called for state legislatures, including Michigan's, to name Trump electors in states won by Biden. Trump invited Republican state lawmakers from Michigan — state Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey and House Speaker Lee Chatfield — to the White House last week. Pennsylvania is also expected to certify its election results Monday even as the Trump campaign continues its sputtering legal fight there.

What We Know About a Suddenly Important Michigan Elections Board

The work of the Michigan Board of State Canvassers is not glamorous and rarely draws much attention. Its members handle matters like reviewing petition signatures and helping local clerks find voting machines. But on Monday, the national spotlight will fall on one of the board’s normally mundane tasks: reviewing results from the presidential election that have been certified by Michigan’s 83 counties and giving a stamp of approval. Joseph R. Biden Jr. beat President Trump in the state by over 150,000 votes, according to the Michigan Bureau of Elections. But Mr. Trump and his Republican allies are trying to upend that reality by urging the board to refuse to certify the election results.

Two Republicans on the county’s canvassing board attempted to rescind their votes to certify the county’s results after Trump himself called them. Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, a Democrat, said the certification could not be reversed. The state board, which includes two Democrats and two Republicans, is due to meet on Monday to certify election results and will have as many as 20 days to do so. The Secretary of State’s office on Friday recommended that the state board certify the results, which showed Biden winning in Michigan by 154,187 votes.

A group of Michigan voters are suing President Donald Trump and the Trump presidential campaign, accusing them of "openly seeking to disenfranchise Black voters" through their legal challenges to the presidential election, according to Politico. The lawsuit was filed on Friday in the US District Court for the District of Columbia, alleging that the Trump campaign seeks to suppress hundreds of thousands of votes. A group of Michigan voters and the Michigan Welfare Rights Organization are suing President Donald Trump and the Trump presidential campaign, accusing them of "openly seeking to disenfranchise Black voters" through their legal challenges to the 2020 presidential election, according to Politico. The Trump campaign has targeted Wayne County, which encompasses majority-Black Detroit, in its efforts to investigate any cases of voter fraud. Biden won Michigan and its 16 electoral votes by a 51%-48% margin, leading by 160,000 votes statewide.

Details of the meeting with Mike Shirkey, the leader of the State Senate, and Lee Chatfield, the speaker of the state House, are still murky, but it appears to be a part of the president’s campaign to interfere with the state’s certification process that is expected to be finalized on Monday. At least two other Michigan Republicans, Tom Barrett, a state senator, and Representative Jason Wentworth, who will take over as speaker of the state House in January, will join Mr. Shirkey and Mr. Chatfield at the White House. He has been a vocal supporter of the president and attended one of his rallies in Michigan the week before the election. Mr. Trump has already intervened in the process at least once this week, calling a Republican elections official in Wayne County, home to Detroit, after she voted to certify Mr. Biden’s victory there. Following the call, both she and another Republican official asked to rescind their votes, though there is no mechanism for them to do so.

President Donald Trump called two Michigan canvassing board Republicans the day before they announced they wanted to rescind their certification of votes in the county that includes Detroit, one of the board members told NBC News. Trump “called to make sure I was okay, that I was safe and to check on me. I appreciated that knowing how busy he is,” Palmer told NBC News. “My work on the canvass is not attached to my support for the president,” Palmer told NBC News. Aneta Kiersnowski, press secretary for Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, told NBC News, "There is no legal mechanism for them to rescind their vote.

ET Presidential Transition Live Updates: Michigan Republicans Tried to Rescind Certification of Results After a Call From Trump Republican election officials in Wayne County tried to rescind the certification of Detroit’s results, but they legally cannot. The Trump administration has been criticized before for fostering anti-immigrant sentiment and ties to white nationalists. Shortly after Mr. Trump took office, the White House issued a statement on Holocaust Remembrance Day that neglected to mention Jews. The Justice Department under Mr. Trump resumed federal capital punishment this summer after a nearly two-decade informal moratorium. The payments were cited by the Trump administration when it cut off funding and took other punitive measures against the Palestinians starting in 2018.

Wayne County Board of Canvassers Chair Monica Palmer, left, talks with Vice Chair Jonathan Kinloch before the board's Tuesday, Nov. 17, 2020 meeting in Detroit. President Donald Trump's lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, said Thursday that the Trump campaign is withdrawing from an election-related lawsuit in Michigan. The Trump campaign's federal lawsuit had attempted to stop Wayne County, which contains the city of Detroit, from certifying its election results until swaths of ballots were cut from the final tally. Wayne County is the most populous area in Michigan, and voted overwhelmingly for Biden over Trump — 68% to 31%, respectively. The other GOP canvasser, Monica Palmer, wrote in her own affidavit, "I fully believe the Wayne County vote should not be certified."

President Donald Trump called two Republican canvass board members from Wayne County, Michigan, to offer his support, a person familiar with the matter said, after they went back and forth on voting to certify the election results from the state's largest county, which includes Detroit. CNN's Brooke Baldwin discusses with Michigan's Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson.

Trump’s campaign has filed at least nine lawsuits challenging the results since the Nov. 3 election, with scant success so far. Giuliani said accounts of suspicious activity would ultimately overturn the election, which Biden won nationwide by 5.9 million votes. Part of the new Trump campaign effort involves trying to delay certification, the normally routine process by which election results are finalized, the senior campaign official said. Trump’s campaign dropped a federal lawsuit on Thursday challenging the election results in Michigan, citing the Wayne County officials’ affidavits. A Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll released on Wednesday found about half of Republicans believed Trump “rightfully won” the election.

Mr. Biden won all three states, flipping Arizona and Georgia from Mr. Trump’s column. Mr. Sterling, who was on part of the call with Mr. Graham and Mr. Raffensperger, said the conversation was focused on process. Mr. Graham has joined other Republicans questioning the legitimacy of Mr. Biden’s victory over Mr. Trump. “I have reversed the ridiculous decision to cancel Wreaths Across America at Arlington National Cemetery,” Mr. Trump wrote on Twitter.

At issue in Wayne County were minor discrepancies in which the number of votes cast did not match the number of voters listed as having shown up to vote in various election precincts. This could have stemmed from scenarios like a voter leaving a long line, or an absentee ballot kicked out of a tabulator, among other possibilities. Sensing that Republicans might play politics with the certification, Representatives Debbie Dingell and Rashida Tlaib, two Democrats from metro Detroit, started making calls around 1:30 p.m., urging Democrats to join the Wayne County Board of Canvassers meeting to ensure that the election results would actually be certified. When the board came back, its members informed the crowd that they had just voted unanimously to certify the results and ordered Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson to conduct a thorough audit of the Wayne County results, especially the precincts with disparities. A senior adviser to Mr. Trump, Justin Clark, said the campaign had played no role at the canvassing board.

Biden was projected to win Arizona after more than a week of vote counting from the Nov. 3 election, Edison Research said. He becomes only the second Democratic presidential candidate in seven decades to win the traditionally Republican state. Biden’s win in Arizona gives him 290 electoral votes in the state-by-state Electoral College that determines the White House winner. Arizona’s 11 additional electoral votes put any longshot challenge by Trump even further out of reach. State election officials report no serious irregularities and his legal challenges have failed in court.

Posts saying Republicans were not allowed inside Detroit’s ballot-counting room on Nov. 4, the day after the U.S. presidential election, have been shared online. GOP poll challengers react after being asked to leave due to room capacity at the TCF Center after Election Day in Detroit, Michigan, U.S., November 4, 2020. The allegation that Conservatives were barred from coming inside is misleading: Republican and Democrat challengers were allowed inside the room but people from both sides were blocked from re-entering because maximum capacity had been reached. “Officials just had to stop letting more in because the room was well beyond capacity of both Republican and Democrat,” he wrote. “There was never a policy of blocking only one party’s election challengers from entering the CCB (Central Counting Board).

Trump, 74, who won both states in 2016, now has fewer options to secure a second four-year term. “They are finding Biden votes all over the place -- in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Michigan. Trump held a narrow lead in North Carolina, while his lead dwindled in Georgia, and Biden led in Arizona. Should he win Arizona, Biden would be only the second Democratic presidential candidate to win the state in 72 years.

And a number of other seats also flipped from red to blue: two more in the State House and two congressional seats in Oakland County. And of course, the state’s governor, Gretchen Whitmer, a Democrat, won the county by a margin of 17 points that year. The county also helped elect Dana Nessel as state attorney general and Jocelyn Benson as secretary of state, flipping those seats from red to blue. Now, 2020 is looking to be an even bluer year for Democrats in Oakland County. A New York Times/Sienna poll of Michigan taken from Oct. 23-26 shows Mr. Biden with an eight-point lead over Mr. Trump.

Several have topped 2016 numbers for mail ballots returned, even as in-person early voting is opening up in much of the country. Nationwide, early voting for the general election has already surpassed four years ago when 58.8 million people cast early or mail-in ballots. Source: Associated PressMore Texans have already cast early ballots than voted in the entire 2016 general election. Election officials already talk about “Election Week” rather than “Election Day” and urge voters to see a lengthy count in close contests as normal. Nationally, early voting is accelerating as mail-in voting deadlines and Election Day are approaching.
