Michigan canvassers board affirms November results
The Michigan Board of State Canvassers said “no” Wednesday to almost all efforts to toss out votes cast in elections for two questions on the November ballot.
The attorney for Election Integrity Fund and Force, which has a history of denying election results, made repeated attempts to expand the scope of the review beyond the board’s purview of matching election results with votes cast.
Republican board chair Tony Daunt pushed back.
“If people have reason to believe that a crime has been committed, there are appropriate channels to take and that involves forwarding the concern – with evidence – to the local law enforcement officials,” he said.
“You are not going to persuade us that we should be issuing subpoenas or doing investigations,” said Democratic board member Mary Ellen Gurewitz.
