Michigan's Wayne County, which houses the Detroit area, unanimously certified its presidential election count Tuesday night after Republicans first blocked it in a party-line vote.

The Wayne County Board of Canvassers acted after a 2-2 tie threatened to temporarily halt the approval of Democrat Joe Biden's win in the state.

Biden won the state by about 146,000 votes, according to the unofficial result. He carried Wayne County, a Democratic stronghold, winning over 68 percent of the total votes.
