Michigan county requesting state audit of 2020 election results

A northern Michigan county has requested requested the state government to conduct an audit of its 2020 election results.

Per the Detroit News “Nearly eight months after Election Day, the GOP-controlled Cheboygan County Board of Commissioners voted 4-3 to send a letter to Jonathan Brater, the state elections director, requesting a recount of its ballots and a review of whether an “unauthorized computer” manipulated the tallies.”

The letter will be sent to Jonathan Brater, who became state elections director after being appointed by Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson in 2019.

Appearing on CNN, Benson dismisses the state lawmaker’s call for a statewide forensic audit based on a baseless conspiracy theory that a computer “manipulated” votes in the 2020 election.
