It's official: Michigan certifies Donald Trump's win

President-elect Trump's election victory in Michigan was certified Monday by the Michigan Board of Canvassers.

The board voted 4-0 to certify the state's election results Monday afternoon, and the final tally showed Trump with a total of 2,279,543 votes, while Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton got 2,268,839, a difference of just 10,704 votes. Behind the two front-runners were Libertarian Gary Johnson at 172,136 votes and the Green Party's Jill Stein at 51,463 votes.

Last week, the Michigan secretary of state posted vote counts certified at the county level from the contest that showed Trump with a 10,704 vote lead, but the count wasn't official until Monday. Michigan's 16 electoral votes deals Trump a total of 306 electoral votes to Clinton's 232. It was the closest presidential race in the state in more than 75 years, the Associated Press reported.

The state's 4.8 million votes may soon be getting another look, following media reports of alleged hacking or tampering in three swing states, including Michigan, though there is no hard evidence of any tampering of the results. Stein, with the support of Clinton, is leading a fundraising campaign to request recounts in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan. After raising millions of dollars, a recount is already underway in Wisconsin and Stein filed for another one in Pennsylvania on Monday.
