MADISON, WI – Official recount procedures begin in Wisconsin Friday, following a petition from President Donald J. Trump’s campaign. Jim Troupis, Wisconsin counsel to the campaign says changing the rules at the last minute and ignoring the election law has created unreliable results in the state's election.

On behalf of the campaign, Troupis released the following statement:

Our democracy depends on fair and impartial elections that fully adhere to the Constitution and state statute. By staging a last minute attempt to change the rules, and by providing unlawful advice before then, the Wisconsin Elections Commission has repeatedly failed to follow the law. They have disenfranchised voters and undermined the integrity of this election. We continue to be confident that when all of the legal ballots are counted and illegal ballots are not counted, President Trump will be proven the winner.

Biden currently leads President Trump with a little more than 20,600 votes.

From the AP, the results they will begin recounting in certain counties:
