Michigan: “Secretary of State Benson: Statewide audit affirms election outcome”

Detroit News:

A statewide election audit has affirmed Michigan’s vote-counting machines are accurate and President Joe Biden won the state’s election, Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson said Friday.

Hundreds of municipal and county clerks from more than 1,300 jurisdictions took part in Michigan’s auditing exercise, hand-counting more than 18,000 ballots that were randomly selected, according to a press release from Benson’s office.

In the hand count, Biden received more votes than former President Donald Trump, and the percentage of votes for each candidate was within “fractions of a percentage point of machine-tabulated totals,” according to a press release.
