LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Michigan’s audits of the 2020 general election found that it was was secure and accurate, Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson said Tuesday.
Local clerks checked numbers by comparing the hand-count total of paper ballots to machine-tabulated numbers, Benson said at a news conference. The clerks also examined post-election procedures. More than 1,300 clerks of different political parties and geographic locations conducted 250 audits across the state and all came to the same conclusion: This was the most secure election in state history, she said.
Conspiracy theories asserting that President Joe Biden “stole” the election from former President Donald Trump spread across the country after the election, with Trump stoking the flames even before states had results.

Michigan’s GOP-led Legislature has held numerous committee hearings to examine the validity and security of the election, including a hearing in December where Republican leaders gave Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani the floor to talk at length about baseless claims of mass fraud, including that Detroit Democrats created hundreds of thousands of “illegal votes.”
