Michigan: Wayne County FAILS to Certify Election Results in Deadlocked Party Line Vote
The Wayne County Board of Canvassers in Michigan has failed to certify its election results as a result of a 2-2 party line split, meaning that the state board of canvassers will need to adjudicate the matter at a later date.
Wayne County’s board consists of two Democrats and two Republicans. The Democrats voted to certify the results while the Republicans voted against.
Michigan Republican Party Chair Laura Cox released the following statement:
“The people of Michigan deserve to know what happened in Wayne County on Election Day and the days following. I am proud that, due to the efforts of the Michigan Republican Party, the Republican National Committee and the Trump Campaign, enough evidence of irregularities and potential voter fraud was uncovered resulting in the Wayne County Board of Canvassers refusing to certify their election results. This action will allow more time for us to get to the bottom of these deeply troubling irregularities. The people of Michigan deserve fair, open and transparent elections, and we will continue to fight for just that.”
The Detroit News notes that “a county board that fails to canvass within 14 days after the election must give all of its documentation to the Secretary of State’s office and Board of State Canvassers, which then has 10 days to complete the work and canvass and certify the results, according to the board’s canvassing manual.”
The state board also consists of two Democrats and two Republicans and will next meet on Monday, November 23.
This certainly represents a victory for President Trump, Republicans, and Trump supporters, who have been fighting and using all avenues possible to come up with an accurate ballot count amidst numerous allegations of voter fraud.
