Michigan's 2020 Election Results

Nov 7, 2020

Updated November 7, 2020 at 11:38 a.m.: The Associated Press has called Pennsylvania for Joe Biden, giving him 284 electoral votes, naming him President-Elect. Many states are still tallying ballots. For more, head here.

November 3 was the final voting day of the 2020 election. Former Vice President Joe Biden has won Michigan’s 16 electoral college votes in the presidential race, and junior U.S. Senator Gary Peters maintained his seat by a razor thin margin. U.S. Rep. Elissa Slotkin and U.S. Rep. Haley Stevens both held on to their seats in the 8th and 11th Congressional Districts, respectively, and Peter Meijer won the open seat in the 3rd Congressional District. The Michigan Democratic Party also won back the majority in the U.S. Supreme Court with the reelection of Chief Justice Bridget Mary McCormack and the election of attorney Elizabeth Welch. Voters also overwhelmingly approved both Proposal 1 and 2.

Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson said a lot of things fell into place on Tuesday, even with more people using absentee ballots and same-day voter registration.

“The story of today is there was extraordinarily high levels of turnout. And there were extraordinarily high numbers of new people voting through registering to vote, and people by and large saw peacefulness, calmness in the precincts.”

Benson said somewhere between 2 million and 2.5 million people showed up to vote in person. She said 3.3 million voted absentee.
