The laws of Michigan’s state do not allow verification before the certification of election results, said on Sunday, the representative of the State Department of Michigan, Jake Rollow.
Earlier, the Republican leadership asked the election commission to postpone the results’ certification for two weeks to conduct a check on certain “numerical anomalies,” while by law, they must be certified by November 23 at the latest.
“Checks play a different role in the Michigan election: examine and identify errors for future improvements. And Michigan law prohibits checks before the state certifies election results,” he said.
According to Rollow, similar checks are already planned.
He also noted that candidates can request a recount of votes after the voting results’ approval and must also inform law enforcement about all known fraud cases.
“At this time, there was no evidence of large – scale neglect of duty or forgery, and the judges, initially appointed by both Republicans and Democrats, found the allegations of large-scale forgery completely untenable,” Rollow added.
