A 2-2 deadlock was short-lived when election officials in Michigan’s largest county voted to certify its election results on Tuesday evening.
Wayne County Board of Canvassers 4-0 vote to certify the votes will no longer delay the state from confirming the win for President-elect Joe Bide, Fox News reports. The board that has two Democrats and two Republicans on it made a request to the state’s Secretary of State, Jocelyn Benson—to audit the election process and move forward to reforms that would help decrease discrepancies in the future of voting.
The board’s reverse decision was announced hours after the deadlock 2-2 result amongst the two political parties. Republicans voiced their concerns pertaining to absentee poll books in the Detroit area precincts that supposedly did not match records, and therefore voted against certification.
Fortunately, the state canvassers will no longer have to certify election results. The board continued to meet as Republican poll watchers and Trump supporters continued to battle it out in unsuccessful and baseless litigation cases that cited election fraud.
