Detroit’s Wayne County fails to certify election results

The elec­tions board in Wayne Coun­ty, Michi­gan’s largest metrop­o­lis and home to the city of Detroit, failed Tues­day night to cer­ti­fy the results of its Nov. 3 elec­tion, inject­ing new dra­ma into a legal fight waged by Pres­i­dent Trump’s cam­paign in sev­er­al bat­tle­ground states.

The Wayne Coun­ty Board of Can­vassers dead­locked 2–2, with both Repub­li­can mem­bers refus­ing to cer­ti­fy the results after dis­crep­an­cies were dis­cov­ered in absen­tee bal­lot poll books. Sim­i­lar prob­lems were dis­cov­ered in the coun­ty’s sum­mer pri­ma­ry and the Novem­ber 2016 elec­tion but did not impact the board­’s vote then.

Under Michi­gan law, a coun­ty that fails to can­vass with­in 14 days after the elec­tion must yield its doc­u­men­ta­tion to the Sec­re­tary of State’s office and Board of State Can­vassers to deter­mine if the results should be accepted.
