Michigan's State Board certified Joe Biden as President-elect
Michigan officially recognized the vote as valid and declared Joe Biden's victory.
Michigan's State Board canvassers voted 3 to 0, and named Biden the winner in Michigan by 154,000 votes over Trump. The only member of the Republican commission abstained from voting.
Trump's campaign has filed three lawsuits in Michigan. One of the first was a lawsuit demanding to stop the counting of votes due to the fact that some Republican observers were denied entry to the polling station.
The second lawsuit demanded a ban on the certification of election results in Detroit. But the lawsuit was unfounded and Judge Timothy Kenny denied the motion.
“Chief Judge Kenny’s quick decision mirrors a decision yesterday by Court of Claims Judge Stephens – specifically, that, once again, the allegations are mere speculation,” Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel’s Press Secretary Ryan Jarvi said in a statement. “The swift, clear and decisive opinion should put to rest the meritless claims that have been made in Michigan and other states around the country.”
The third lawsuit referred to massive ballot fraud. Trump's minions claimed they had dozens of evidence of electoral fraud, but after verification, it turned out that there was intimidation, not falsification.
Following the announcement of Biden's victory in Michigan, State Governor Gretchen Whitmer, together with Attorney General Dana Nessel, issued statements.
