A third recount state

So Michigan is doing a recount of the election votes, and it's scheduled to start at noon today.

I'm trying to keep track of what the official vote totals were before the recount gets underway.  I'd been looking at sites like Politico and the New York Times, but the best bet is probably the Michigan Secretary of State website.  It even has the ".gov" URL ending, so you know it's official:,4670,7-127-1633_8722_76444-397762--,00.html.  They're pretty clear:

The results below have been canvassed and certified by the Michigan Board of State Canvassers on Nov. 28. Trump leads Clinton by 10,704 votes.

2,279,543 Donald J. Trump, Republican
2,268,839 Hillary Clinton, Democratic
172,136 Gary Johnson, Libertarian
51,463 Jill Stein, Green
16,139 Darrell L. Castle, U.S. Taxpayers
8,177 Evan McMullin, write-in
2,209 Emidio Mimi Soltysik, Natural Law
517 Michael Maturen, write-in
95 Tom Hoefling, write-in
87 Laurence Kotlikoff, write-in
39 Ben Hartnell, write-in
30 Monica Moorehead, write-in
​10 Cherunda Fox, write-in

And here is an archived version in case that page gets changed:
