TSR Politics: Michigan Decides To Certify Election Votes After An Earlier Attempt By Republicans To Block Certification

On Tuesday, election officials in Michigan reversed its initial decision and unanimously certified presidential election results, according to @apnews. This comes hours after Republicans first blocked the certification of the ballot count in Wayne County that includes Detroit, sending the decision to a state board for approval.
The Board of Canvassers for Wayne County were initially split 2-2 on a vote. Two Democrats on the panel of four voted to certify the results, while two Republicans voted against the certification.

As previously reported, Michigan, a swing state, has been called for President-elect Joe Biden. It is reported that he took 68% of the county’s 863,000 votes and won the state by more than 145,000 votes.

Trump and his supporters have argued that election fraud is responsible for his loss, despite national election officials stating this was the ‘most secure’ election in history.

According to CBS News, the federal election infrastructure officials released a statement on Thursday that debunks Trump’s claims—The 2020 election was the “most secure in American history.”

“There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes or was in any way compromised,” the statement said.

Most recently, Michelle Obama took to Instagram and encouraged Trump and his team to have a smooth transition of power, ““This isn’t a game. So I want to urge all Americans, especially our nation’s leaders, regardless of party, to honor the electoral process and do your part to encourage a smooth transition of power, just as sitting presidents have done throughout our history.”
