All eyes will be on the State of Michigan as the Board of State Canvassers is scheduled to meet remotely at 1 p.m. Monday to certify the state’s presidential election results.
But, for what is believed would be the first time in history, Michigan’s elections board could deadlock on certifying the results.
Watch the live stream here. We will have video embedded when it goes live at 1.
The public can comment on the meeting in writing or speak at the meeting. Requests must be submitted by signing up on the department’s website here.
Members of the public who wish to speak at the meeting will be invited based on the order in which the request is received. They will have up to 3 minutes to address the board and can expect to receive information about how to log on to the webinar by the email they provide in the sign-up form.
Also included on the meeting’s agenda:
- Consideration of meeting minutes for approval (Oct. 15, 2020 meeting).
- Recording the results of the Nov. 3, 2020 special election for the Michigan House of Representatives, 4th District, partial term ending Jan. 1, 2021.
The Michigan Democratic Party sent a letter to the board Sunday urging them to “carry out your responsibility under Michigan law” and certify the results.
The letter was sent one day after the Michigan Republican Party and the Republican National Committee sent a joint letter to the board asking to delay certification of the state’s election results for 14 days and audit Wayne County’s general election results.
