Michigan’s Whitmer Admits State Isn’t Prepared to Tabulate Votes On Election Day

Having known since March that November’s General Election was going to see an influx of absentee and mail-in ballots, Michigan’s Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D), was forced to admit that her state is understaffed to the point election results may not be definitive on election night.

In an interview on CBS’s Face The Nation, the governor was asked if the State of Michigan, a critical swing state in the 2020 election, will be able to report definitive election results on election night. Whitmer’s answer was less than definitive itself.

Referring to Michigan’s Secretary of State, Jocelyn Benson, Whitmer said she has been informed that the state is expecting delays in counting votes. This necessarily means the state failed to help local authorities prepare for receiving the additional influx of absentee and mail-in ballots caused by the COVID pandemic.
