December 11, 2016 Updated: December 11, 2016    

Officials say Dane County’s recount of presidential votes from November’s election has been completed Saturday, reports said.

County clerk Scott McDonnell tells WISC-TV that no major discrepancies had been discovered in the recount, which was being conducted by hand.

Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton by more than 22,000 votes in the state. Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein requested the recount over the possibility that the election machines had been hacked.

A federal judge on Friday ruled that Wisconsin’s recount should move forward, after Trump supporters sued to stop the process.

According to the latest election tally for the county:

Donald J. Trump/Michael R. Pence: 71,279

Hillary Clinton/Tim Kaine: 217,526

Gary Johnson/Bill Weld: 781

Jill Stein/Ajamu Baraka: 10,544

Monica Moorehead/Lamont Lilly: 175

The following are Dane County’s totals for each candidate McDonnell provided after the recount:

Donald J. Trump/Michael R. Pence: 71,279

Gary Johnson/Bill Weld: 781

Jill Stein/Ajamu Baraka: 10,540

Wisconsin has set a deadline of 8 p.m. Monday for the recount to be finished. All states much certify election results by Dec. 13.
