Michigan Legislature Calls Emergency Oversight Session

Looking for answers on allegations of fraud in the presidential election.

A joint meeting of the House and Senate Oversight Committees of the Michigan Legislature was called Sunday night—a rare occurrence. The session was called after reports surfaced of potential fraud taking place in the presidential election, particularly including a software glitch that caused 6,000 votes to be incorrectly tabulated in favor of Joe Biden. Once a hand-count had taken place, those 6,000 votes went to President Trump. The Secretary of State for Michigan said it was “human error,” and not a “software glitch.”

Michigan House Speaker Lee Chatfield said in a statement, “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.

“America’s democracy is sacred, and safe and secure elections are how we protect it. That is why the House and Senate oversight committees will begin hearings soon looking into the voting and counting process in our state to give everyone confidence in the results and to make sure the next election runs much more smoothly,” Chatfield said. “The people of Michigan deserve peace of mind, and we are going to provide it.”

The legislature ended up serving state election officials with a subpoena for documents related to the state’s election process. House Oversight Committee Chairman Matt Hall said the investigation was necessary so Michiganders have confidence in the state’s election processes.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For state legislators and judges who are being called upon to look into alleged discrepancies or fraudulent activities with respect to the presidential election.
  • For state election officials where counting, recanvasing, or recounting of ballots is taking place.
