LANSING, Mich., November 4, 2020 – The Michigan Republican Party is currently monitoring numerous irregularities that occurred with the counting and reporting of votes throughout the state of Michigan.
One of the irregularities was a reporting error in Antrim County, which skewed initial returns in the unofficial election results tabulations. According to Antrim County, the glaring discrepancy in vote totals was caused by a software program used in several communities throughout the state of Michigan. Once the error in Antrim County was corrected, we saw a net swing of over 6,000 votes going in favor of President Trump and John James.
In addition, the Michigan Republican Party is looking into allegations that thousands of ballots were dropped off at the City of Detroit counting board after 3:00 AM, following volunteers having been told that the final batch of votes was processed hours before. The situation was exacerbated when Wayne County Clerk Kathy Garrett refused to report how many votes in Wayne County were outstanding, in an interview with CNN this morning.
“The irregularities reported this morning are incredibly troubling, especially given how close the election results are in Michigan.” said Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox. Cox continued, “At this point, it is unclear whether or not these issues were caused by incompetence or corruption, but the fact that they exist is of great concern, and the Michigan Republican Party will spare no expense to expose the truth of what happened in yesterday’s election.”
