The results came in seven days after the recount of nearly 460,000 ballots began, The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported. It ended with boosting Biden’s total by 257 votes, up from 317,270 to 317,527.
Officials in the city of Milwaukee found 386 unopened and uncounted absentee ballots that the Board of Canvassers voted unanimously to be opened and counted, the newspaper noted. An additional 65 ballots were reported as being misplaced on Wednesday however they were not accounted for by Friday.
Milwaukee County Clerk George Christenson last week said observers for Trump were objecting to nearly every ballot pulled to count.
“It’s not our job to train their observers on what they’re observing,” he said. “They clearly don’t know what they’re doing and so they keep asking questions. And we’ve said to the Trump campaign, you need to tell your people what you’re looking for here because they’re objecting to every ballot.”
