The official narrative promoted by Michigan election officials has long been that Joe Biden defeated President Donald J. Trump in the 2020 General election in Michigan by 154,188 votes, thereby awarding Michigan’s 16 electoral college votes to Joe Biden. On the basis of this narrative, on July 18, 2023, Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel indicted each of the alternate 16 Republican electors with eight felony counts, including forgery and conspiracy charges. These charges hinge upon the assertion that the 2020 election was lawfully certified. Was it?
Wayne County, MI, is the largest county by population in the State of Michigan. According to the official Wayne County election records for the 2020 General Election, 597,170 votes were cast for Joe Biden and 264,553 for President Trump for a vote margin of 332,617 in favor of Biden. If these votes were not lawfully certified, the statewide vote margin would flip to reveal a 178,429 margin of victory for President Trump in Michigan. That means that due to the discrepancy, President Trump, not Joe Biden, would be the rightful owner of Michigan’s 16 electoral college votes for the 2020 election.
The question is, “Are there compelling legal grounds to assert that the 2020 election results in Wayne County, MI, were not lawfully certified?”
Technically, only one Republican and one Democrat have to sign the document to make it legal, but in the case of the 2020 election, only two Democrats have signed the official 2020 General Election Certificate.
There were numerous anomalies that bring the certification of the 2020 election results in Wayne County into question. Included among these anomalies are the following:
- There was a 3:30 am ballot drop at the Absentee Vote Counting Board (AVCB) center at the TCF Center in Detroit without any chain of custody.
- Brazen poll book updates one day before Wayne County Board of Canvassers vote on certification, 13 days after the election, and 6 days after Michigan statute (MCL 168.813) requires the list of voters to be uploaded to the statewide Qualified Voter File.
- An astounding 71% of AVCBs in Detroit were unbalanced and, per statute, not subject to recount.
