Joseph R. Biden Jr. pulled into a narrow lead in Wisconsin early Wednesday after absentee ballots were counted from the cities of Milwaukee and Green Bay.
Mr. Biden’s lead in the state is about 11,000 votes statewide out of more than three million cast — though absentee ballots remain to be counted and reported from Kenosha a Democratic city with an absentee electorate expected to skew Democratic.
Green Bay’s counting had been delayed by slow ballot-counting machines, and one machine ran out of ink early Wednesday, further delaying the process until more could be brought from City Hall.
According to the projections from the Associated Press, Biden leads Trump by 238 to 213 in electoral votes. An electoral college vote of 270 is needed to clinch the presidential victory.
