Board of State Canvassers certifies election results

The bipartisan Michigan Board of State Canvassers has certified the results of the statewide November elections.

The determination was met with jeers and applause.

Tony Daunt is the board’s Republican chair. Daunt says he’s not happy with the Democratic sweep in statewide races, but he says people can’t just reject the results because they don’t like the outcome.

“That is dangerous to the system. It feeds lies into people’s heads, and it creates problems where people have no trust in how things turned out.”

One disruptive person was removed from the meeting.

Official certification does clear the way for court challenges and recount requests so those can be handled before new terms begin in January.
