UPDATE: Wayne County, Michigan Reverses Decision, Certifies Vote

BREAKING: The board of canvassers in Wayne County, Michigan refused to certify the election results, citing irregularities in the absentee ballot counts. The state board will now have to do the canvass and certification.

“I believe that we do not have complete and accurate information on those poll books,” Republican committee chair Monica Palmer told the Detroit Free Press.

The issue involves unexplained discrepancies between the number of absentee ballots recorded as cast and the number of absentee ballots counted.

“Most of this is human error. … It’s not based on fraud,” Democrat vice chair Jonathan Kinloch told the newspaper.

Democrats are infuriated that Republicans stood their ground.

Michigan Democratic Party chair Lavora Barnes called the vote “an outrageous display of partisan posturing.”

“Monica Palmer and William Hartmann have chosen to tarnish their personal legacy by picking up the GOP banner of making allegations without any evidence,” she told the newspaper. “For the Republican members of the Wayne County Board of Canvassers to buy into conspiracy theories and completely disregard the will of the voters in Michigan is not only shameful but a complete dereliction of duties.”
