Benson celebrating a smooth primary election

Jocelyn Benson, Michigan Secretary of State

Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson is celebrating what she calls a safe and secure primary election day

Outside of an incident in Inkster, where polling locations opened without electronic poll books to verify voters, Benson says there were no major issues reported to her office. She says election officials worked with non-partisan groups to address that problem quickly, along with other minor concerns that popped up around the state.

“There were no disturbances throughout the day which I am very grateful for. This was as it was in 2020, a smooth election day.”

Benson says her office had not heard of any unscheduled polling location changes in Detroit this year, an issue that has periodically occurred in the city. She says there were no reported threats or arrests made due to election interference.
