Michigan on Monday voted to certify President-elect Joe Biden’s win, dealing another blow to President Donald Trump who had hoped that Republicans in the state will block the certification of election results.
Michigan’s statewide electoral board approved its presidential vote tally after resisting pressure from President Trump to delay the process, and paving the way for Biden to receive the 16 electoral votes in the state.
Biden won the state by 154,000 votes over Trump.

The board, comprising two Democrats and two Republicans, voted 3 to 0 with one abstention to certify the results.
The certification of the results has now delivered Biden a battleground state that Mr. Trump flipped from Democrats in 2016.
