Michigan's presidential recount is under way following a ruling by a federal judge.


Federal Judge Mark Goldsmith issued the ruling just after midnight in favor of Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein.


The ruling gives the state more time to conduct the hand recount before the December 13th deadline.


The state wanted to wait two business days to get started.


Goldsmith heard arguments over the logistics of the recount and how much the state would have to spend, but in his written opinion, he said what’s most important is the integrity of the presidential election in Michigan.
