Michigan board certifies Nov. 3 election, cementing Biden victory

“The board in charge of certifying election results cast a pivotal vote to validate the state’s tallies, cementing victories of Joe Biden, Gary Peters”

The Michigan board in charge of certifying election results cast a pivotal vote Monday to validate the state’s tallies, cementing Democratic President-elect Joe Biden’s victory despite unproven claims of fraud levied by Republican President Donald Trump.

The Board of State Canvassers voted 3-0 to certify the results after taking about three hours of public comment from election officials, lawmakers and residents. Republican board member Aaron Van Langevelde crossed over to join the two Democratic board members in supporting certification,which is traditionally viewed as an administrative step but had drawn the spotlight as Trump’s campaign questioned the integrity of the election.

The other Republican on the panel, Norm Shinkle, abstained.

“We have a clear legal duty to certify the results of the election, as shown by the returns that were given to us,” Van Langevelde said. “We cannot and should not go beyond that. As John Adams once said, ‘We are a government of laws, not men.’

Aaron Van Langevelde, a Republican member of the Board of State Canvassers, voted to certify Michigan's Nov. 3 election during the board's meeting on Nov. 23, 2020.

“This board needs to adhere to that principle and do its part to uphold the rule of law here today. This board must uphold the law and comply with our legal duty to certify this election.”

Shinkle called for the Republican-led Legislature to conduct an in-depth review of election procedures in the state. He also cited Wayne County, where two GOP canvassers said they regretted their votes to certify the county results because of out-of-balance absentee ballot counting boards in Detroit.

“I do not plan on voting for certification. I believe Wayne County’s certification needs to be looked at,” Shinkle said before abstaining.  read more…

  1. I thought that the votes carried to the Presidential States voting were by the Legislature. Further, there are several Legal Challenges and this will go to the Supreme Court on Multiple Grounds. VT is coming across like a MSM Fake News Rag.
