Michigan’s 16 Electoral College votes played a critical role in winning the White House. The Michigan win helped President-Elect Joe Biden reach 264 electoral votes the night after the election—leaving him just one state away from the required 270 electoral college votes. In 2016, Donald Trump won Michigan by just 10,704 votes, but in 2020, grassroots volunteers contributed more than 154,000 votes to Joe Biden’s win.
Michigan grassroots volunteers from around the country joined 100+ events, which included more than 1055 shifts to support the state. These volunteers joined our invincible grassroots partners, and helped put Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in the White House, save a Senate seat, hold two House of Representative seats, hold the line in the State House, and flip the balance of power at the State Supreme Court.
