Michigan, one of the major key swing states, is pushing for more time to count mail-in ballots amid late-result fears.
Amid fears of possible voter fraud this fall, the high volume of mailed ballots expected for the election has raised concerns that the final result could be significantly delayed, and mailed or absentee ballots should be verified and counted, in addition to the votes in person.
“The bottom line is we are not going to have the full results and a counting of all of our ballots on Election Night. We already know that,” Jocelyn Benson, Democratic Michigan Secretary of State told NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday. She warned that “we should be prepared for this to be closer to an Election Week, as opposed to an Election Day.”
