A bipartisan board vote in Michigan has certified the state’s midterm election results.
The meeting was contentious at times, but the Board of State Canvassers met Monday and voted unanimously to certify the results. After the vote, Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson posted on social media after the vote that “Democracy has prevailed.”
Michigan’s Elections Director reported that about 42% of voters casted an absentee ballot this year.
At one point during the meeting, an attendee was removed after repeatedly disrupting the proceedings. The public did have a large amount of time for comment during the meeting.
