Michigan state laws do not allow for inspection before election results are certified, Michigan State Department representative Jake Rollow.
Earlier, the leadership of the Republicans asked the election commission to postpone the certification of the results for two weeks to conduct an inspection of some “numerical anomalies,” while the law requires that they be certified by November 23 at the latest.
“Verifications play a different role in elections in Michigan: to examine and identify errors for improvement in the future. And Michigan law prohibits inspections until the state certifies election results,” he said.
Such inspections are already scheduled, Rollow said.
He also noted that candidates can request a recount of votes after approval of the voting results, and must also inform law enforcement about all known cases of falsification.
“At that time, there was no evidence of large-scale neglect or forgery, and the judges initially appointed by both Republicans and Democrats found the allegations of large-scale forgery completely untenable,” Rollow added.
According to preliminary data, Republican Trump lost the election in Michigan to Democrat Joe Biden with a margin of about 155 thousand votes.
Trump won’t admit defeat in the election and is challenging the preliminary results in several state courts.
