[Ed. – This needs to happen in a dozen other states.]

The Michigan Legislature on Saturday held a joint hearing of the House and Senate Oversight Committees, a rare occurrence. The session was called after reports of potential fraud taking place in the presidential election. One of the main ones was a software glitch that caused 6,000 votes in Antrim County to be incorrectly counted for Joe Biden. Once the a [sic] hand-count had taken place, those 6,000 votes went to President Trump. The Michigan Secretary of State, however, has said that this was “human error,” not a “software glitch.”

Regardless of the cause, the Republican-led legislature wanted answers.

“Every single legal vote needs to be counted, regardless of who cast it or who they voted for. And then the candidate who wins the most of those votes will win Michigan’s electoral votes, just like it always has been. Nothing about that process will change in 2020,” Michigan House Speaker Lee Chatfield (R-Levering) said in a statement.
