As the recount process moves forward, the Democratic presidential nominee has become increasingly confident that she will secure a win in Michigan, despite a long-shot recount that could cost her the state and put her at a disadvantage.
Clinton’s campaign has been working to convince Michigan voters to cast ballots for Clinton, who is the presumptive Democratic nominee.
On Thursday, she called on all voters in the state to cast their ballots for her.
“We need every vote in Michigan to be counted,” Clinton said in a statement.
“We can count votes, we can vote with a headcount, but we need to count votes with every hand.”
In the state, the recount is being overseen by an independent commission set up by the state.
It’s expected to finish within days.
“I am confident that the results will be in the hands of the voters, and I am confident the voters will elect Hillary Clinton as their next president,” Michigan Secretary of State Ruth Johnson said.
Trump has said he will not allow a recount to take place.
He has also questioned the integrity of the election, which was certified by the Michigan Secretary in November.
The election commission in Michigan was formed in 2016 after a lawsuit by the Clinton campaign over the recount.
The commission, which has not had a permanent staff since its formation in 2016, has conducted several recounts, including one in Michigan in which it successfully challenged the result.
In a recent poll, Clinton was leading Trump by about three points in Michigan.
“The people of Michigan deserve the most accurate count possible, and we are confident that this commission will do everything it can to provide that to them,” Johnson said Thursday.
“All Michigan votes are important to our campaign.
We will continue to press for recounts in every state where we need them.”
Michigan is the first state to allow recounts in a presidential election.
The state has a history of electing Democrats to the U.S. Senate and governor, and has traditionally been an important battleground in the race for the White House.
The race for Michigan has been very tight for months.
Trump won the state by about 2 percentage points in November, but Clinton was able to pick up more than 25 percent of the vote in the final two weeks of the campaign.
