Interview: Trevor Potter on Certifying Michigan's Election Results


“He's really not given that discretion. This is an automatic act. The law says that they shall certify once the votes have come from all of the counties in Michigan, and every county has certified their results to the state board. This is a ministerial function,” said Trevor Potter, president of Campaign Legal Center. “It's worse than that because the reason that the one Republican has given for the possibility of voting against certification is that there are 300 votes in question meaning they're not certain about them in Wayne county out of a statewide margin of 145,000.”
