REUTERS/Tom BrennerMichigan is set to certify its results Monday, and Pennsylvania is likely to move a step closer to doing so. Biden won 306 electoral votes, 36 over the 270 threshold needed to win the White House. Biden defeated Trump in Michigan by more than 150,000 votes, and the board is required by law to validate the count. Officials in one county noted irregularities that may have affected a few hundred votes, and the Trump campaign has suggested that points to widespread fraud. Ron Klain, the incoming White House chief of state, said on Sunday that Biden will announce his first Cabinet picks on Tuesday.

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.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Joe Biden on Saturday reached the two-week mark since becoming president-elect, with President Donald Trump stinging from back-to-back setbacks in his desperate, unprecedented bid to undo his election defeat. FILE PHOTO: U.S. President-elect Joe Biden speaks to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) during a meeting at his transition headquarters in the Queen theater in Wilmington, Delaware, U.S., November 20, 2020. That effort, which critics call an unparalleled push by a sitting president to subvert the will of voters, has met with little success. Trump will participate virtually this weekend in the last summit of the 20 biggest world economies (G20) of his term. There is a “right way and a wrong way” for Trump to contest what he sees as election irregularities, Susan Collins, the Maine Senator, said in a statement.

U.S. President Donald Trump is seen on a screen attending the virtual APEC Economic Leaders Meeting 2020, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia November 20, 2020. His campaign has not provided evidence for its claims of widespread and coordinated electoral fraud. “Massive voter fraud will be shown!” Trump wrote on Twitter. Senior Republicans have remained largely silent about Trump’s unsubstantiated claims of election fraud or have defended his right to seek redress, but several voiced doubts on Friday. The single-day death toll surpassed 2,000 this week for the first time since late June, according to a Reuters tally.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Michigan’s Republican state legislative leaders said after meeting with President Donald Trump on Friday that they had no information that would change the outcome of the presidential election in the state, which was won by Democrat Joe Biden.

Before Friday’s meeting, White House spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany said: “This is not an advocacy meeting. He routinely meets with lawmakers from all across the country.”Shirkey and Chatfield said any allegation of election fraud should be thoroughly investigated. “Michigan’s certification process should be a deliberate process free from threats and intimidation,” they said.

The Michigan Senate's Republican majority leader and other state lawmakers were greeted Friday by protestors' signs saying "SHAME" and chants of "certify the vote" as he headed to meet with President Donald Trump. Trump is expected to lean on them to overturn President-elect Joe Biden's victory in that state, according to an NBC News report. Majority Leader Mike Shirkey and the others were confronted by about 20 protestors after they arrived at Reagan International Airport, just outside Washington, D.C., before their White House meeting. Romney was the 2012 GOP nominee for president; his late father, George Romney, had been governor of Michigan. That's what they're going to tell the president," the leader said.

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.

When Michigan Republicans Refused to Certify Votes, It Wasn’t Normal
  + stars: | 2020-11-18 | by ( Maggie Astor | ) www.nytimes.com sentiment -0.99   time to read: +2 min
If the canvassers find possible errors, it is their job to look into and resolve them, but refusing to certify results based on minor discrepancies is not normal. Michigan’s canvassing boards always have four members split between the two parties, and it is extremely rare for members to decline to certify an election that their party lost. The Board of State Canvassers would have been responsible for certifying Wayne County’s results if the Board of County Canvassers hadn’t. Section 168.822 of Michigan’s election laws says that if a county board fails to certify results, the state board “shall meet immediately and make the necessary determinations and certify the results” within 10 days. What is less clear is what would have happened if the state board’s two Democratic members and two Republican members also deadlocked along party lines.
Persons: Ms, Benson, Palmer, ” Kristen Clarke, Wayne County’s Organizations: , , Civil, State, Democratic Locations: Michigan, Detroit, Livonia —
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.
