MDP Statement on Recount of Michigan Presidential Election Results

LANSING — The Michigan Democratic Party issued the following statement, on behalf of Communications Director Paul Kanan, regarding the potential recount of votes from Michigan’s presidential election:

“While the Michigan Democratic Party is not involved with the recount, we do support any effort that will affirm faith and confidence in our elections process and the results. If a recount does take place, it’s important that election officials are allowed to do their jobs free of outside pressure or constraints. Now, more than ever, it’s critical that voters know they can trust the democratic process, particularly in light of Donald Trump’s baseless and dangerous allegations that millions of people voted illegally in this year’s election.”
