Despite draconian efforts on behalf of the Trump Administration — the state of Michigan along with its legislative election body have voted to certify their results. According to media reports published on Monday, the Board of Elections along with the appropriate Democrats and Republicans present voted promptly to certify the results with at least one Repub joining the Democrats.
The sole Republican who did vote with Dems had this to say.
“I’ve reviewed every section,” Van Langevelde said. “I haven’t found anything about an audit. I found nothing about authority for us to delay certification because we’re waiting for more accurate results. I found nothing about making certification contingent on an audit. I found nothing that gives us the authority to review complaints for fraud.” An election law expert in Lansing said: “The board has an obligation to certify. It has no other duties to exercise.”
