    Michigan’s election results certified; Presidential transition begins

    LANSING, Mich. – Eight-hundred people signed up to speak and thousands watched as the Michigan Board of State Canvassers met in Lansing to vote on whether to certify election results.

    Outside the meeting was a drive-by rally urging the votes to be certified.

    The series of events surrounding the process started last week at a Wayne County Board of Canvassers meeting where the two GOP members initially voted not to certify the county’s results and then voted to certify.


    Monday, the two Democrat members and one GOP member on the state board voted to certify, while the other GOP member abstained.

    After Michigan certified, the Biden campaign received a letter from the General Services Administration (GSA) that the Trump Administration is ready to begin the formal transition process.


    The GSA has ascertained that Joe Biden is the “apparent winner” of the Nov. 3 election, clearing the way for the start of the transition from President Donald Trump’s administration.

    An official said Administrator Emily Murphy made the determination after Trump’s efforts to subvert the vote failed across battleground states, most recently in Michigan.
