Here's Where Michigan Is Still Counting Votes and How Those Counties Voted in 2016

Although Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden narrowly leads incumbent President Donald Trump in the key swing state of Michigan, about 100,000 voters have yet to be counted.

A clearer picture of the Midwestern state's overall results are expected later on Wednesday, but Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson has cautioned that the counting will take time due to the tens of thousands of ballots still outstanding as a result of the unprecedented level of mail-in ballots. About 5.2 million ballots have already been counted in Michigan and Biden leads Trump by approximately 30,000 votes.

"We're going to ensure that the results of our elections accurately reflect every single ballot vote that was cast. And this is particularly important in close races, as the numbers of outstanding ballots is still greater than the margin of difference between many races with leading candidates," Benson said during a virtual briefing Wednesday.

"When we have the first unofficial tabulation, which we hope will come some time in the next 24 hours, we will finalize official protocols moving towards an official tabulation, which could take even more time," she said.
