“Amid the most significant public health crisis in 100 years, Michiganders exercised their right to vote and make their voice heard in record numbers. As we expected, a historic number of ballots have been cast in this election.

“During the campaign, candidates had their say, and now voters must have their say. An accurate count of every eligible vote is more important than a quick count. It’s important that election administrators take the necessary time to get it right.

“Only election administrators can officially determine the winners after the ballots are counted accurately. Michiganders made an extraordinary effort to vote and deserve to have each and every one of their ballots counted.”
