Ballots cast in Antrim County during last month’s general election will be re-counted by hand Thursday.

The recount is part of a lawsuit over an error in the county’s results after election day.

The initial count showed that Democrats like Joe Biden had won the historically conservative area.

Those were the result of human error, according to investigations by the county clerk and the state. 

The corrected results now show a Trump win.

Still some Republican legislators insist the problem could be systemic and must be investigated.

Michigan’s 16 electoral college votes have already been given to Joe Biden.
