Election workers recount ballots at the presidential election recount at the Wisconsin Center Saturday, Nov. 21, 2020, in Milwaukee. Election officials in Wisconsin’s largest county accused observers for President Donald Trump on Saturday of seeking to obstruct a recount of the presidential results, in some instances by objecting to every ballot tabulators pulled to count.

MADISON, Wis. — Milwaukee County completed its recount of presidential ballots, finding only small changes in vote totals for one of the two Wisconsin counties recounting ballots.

But President Donald Trump’s attorneys appear ready for a legal challenge seeking to toss tens of thousands of ballots.

President-elect Joe Biden’s lead increased by 132 votes after county election officials recounted over 450,000 votes.

Biden, a Democrat, won the state by about 20,600 votes. His margin in Milwaukee and Dane counties was about 2-to-1. Dane County election officials do not expect to finish until Sunday.
