Absentee ballot increase may delay Michigan election results
Michigan clerks are worried a surge in absentee ballots will delay results on Election Day. The number of requested early ballots is up 70% since 2016. However, Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey, R-Clark Lake, says he's in opposition to legislation that would allow clerks to start opening return envelopes early. But if no action is taken, will lawmakers be setting clerks up to fail on election day?
