After initially being deadlocked on a vote to certify the election, the Wayne County Board of Canvassers voted unanimously to certify election results Tuesday evening. The motion to hold another vote came following hours of public comments condemning Republican canvassers' decisions to vote against the certification.

The first vote tied 2 to 2 along party lines. But just before 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, the board filed a motion and voted to certify the results under the stipulation that Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson does a comprehensive audit of the election in the county.

So far, judges have ruled three times against lawsuits filed by the Trump campaign or his supporters attempting to stop the counting of votes or to certify this year’s election.
