Counties have until Nov. 17 to finish their canvassing of the vote.
Wisconsin Elections Commission spokesman Reid Magney says it’s likely that the last ones will not be in until that day.
Once the last county is in, Trump has until 5 p.m. the following business day to request the recount. His campaign has said it intends to pursue a recount.
