Benson: November Election Results Will Be Delayed

Michigan’s November election results likely won’t be finalized until the Friday of election week.

Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson spoke in Lansing yesterday…

“Now, it may be sooner, but we want to manage those expectations and we want all watching our election to be patient as our clerks work methodically, carefully and securely to tabulate every ballot and ensure that the results of our elections, once announced, are an accurate reflection of the will of the people.”

Clerks in cities and townships with populations of more than 25,000 will be able begin preparing absentee ballots to be counted the day before election day, under legislation signed by Governor Gretchen Whitmer yesterday.

Those ballots will still not be processed until the polls open November 3rd.

Benson reminded voters that they have multiple ways to cast ballots early – personal delivery to their township or city clerk, delivery to the drop box at your city or township hall, or by mail…

“If you do choose to return your ballot through the mail, please do it within the next few weeks, but no later than two weeks prior to Election Day, or October 19th.”

You can, of course, still vote in person on November 3rd.
