LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) – As the final case in Michigan contesting the 2020 election results has been dismissed, Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson released the following statement:
“The dismissal of the last of the lawsuits attempting to undermine democracy in furtherance of the Big Lie affirms that despite intense scrutiny, and an unprecedented misinformation campaign, the 2020 election was fair and secure, and the results accurately reflect the will of the voters.”
The case contested the results of Antrim County, which initially released unofficial results that were incorrect due to human error. However, the mistake was caught and corrected before the votes were officially tallied. The official results of Antrim County were correct, the audit found.
The case was dismissed by 13th Circuit Court Chief Judge Kevin Elsenheimer, a former Republican state legislator.
