Tuesday night in Wayne County, Michigan, the Board of Canvassers could not come to an agreement on certifying the election votes.
The Republicans had concerns that a large number of Detroit precincts were “out of balance,” meaning that the numbers of voters who signed into polling places did not match the number of ballots there. Many GOP leaders and the White House voiced their concerns about the findings.
In response, Donald Trump tweeted, “Michigan just refused to certify the election results! Having courage is a beautiful thing. The USA stands proud!”
A few hours later, the vote reconsideration took place.
Under a revised motion, the canvassers voted to unanimously certify the Wayne County election results but demanded a “comprehensive audit” by Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson.
The Republican canvassers agreed to certify the results after the promise of an audit but it didn’t come easily. According to reports the Republicans were under enormous pressure from the left to certify the results.
By Wednesday morning, President Trump reacted to the election certification, saying on Twitter that the canvassers were “threatened, screamed at and viciously harassed, and were forced to change their vote.”
Jonathan Kinloch, one of two Democrats on the board, said the audit will commence after the Board of State Canvassers certifies Michigan election results, which could happen as soon as Nov. 23.
Monica Palmer, one of the two Republicans on the board, initially said that she did not “have faith that the poll books are complete and accurate” and said the compromise addressed her concerns.
“I appreciate putting our heads together to come to a solution,” Palmer said.

“It’s all about votes, trying to get votes” said one worker. “It’s a show” said another. Individuals also lamented “they didn’t forget about us During the pandemic. We were building cars and trucks, we were working” only to be left behind now.
Carter said it was evident that immediately after the brief show of “support” Biden immediately left, and got straight on his plane to head to Silicon Valley for a fundraiser.
