The leadership of the Republican Party office in Michigan sent an open letter to the state Election Commission on Saturday asking it to postpone the certification of vote counting results for two weeks to check for inconsistencies.
“The Council (members of the Commission) faces a choice: it can either ignore numerical anomalies and credible reports of procedural deviations.. or it can be suspended for 14 days to allow for a full review and investigation of these anomalies and deviations, before certifying the results of the 2020 General election,” the text of the letter on the website of the local branch of the party says.
Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel and the head of the party’s Michigan office, Laura Cox, signed the document. They called on the Election Committee to follow the example of Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, who previously ordered a manual recount to check the accuracy of the machine count. The results did not change the balance: the winner was declared the Democratic candidate Joe Biden. At the same time, the authorities met the legal deadlines for conducting such a procedure.
In Michigan, the law requires certification of results by November 23.
