Wayne County, Michigan, canvassers reversed course late Tuesday night and voted to certify the results from the November 3 election, which have been disputed.
The Board of Canvassers had originally voted 2-2 along party lines. The tie meant the election results were not certified.
But later into the night, the Republican canvassers flipped and voted with the Democrats, while the live video stream was down.
“After hours of angry responses from Wayne County residents, the change in course was approved by the two Republican and two Democratic canvassers with the demand that the Secretary of State’s office conduct a ‘comprehensive audit’ of precincts with unexplained out-of-balance tallies,” the Detroit News reported.
It is not clear if the approval was conditional on the “comprehensive audit,” or if the investigation was merely requested.
