Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) said election results will not be counted by Election Day. During an interview on Sunday, she slammed the deadline by claiming it was artificial and imposed from people with a political agenda.
The Democrat governor failed to give an ETA of when officials would announce the results and stressed it wouldn’t be too far off from when polls close. Whitmer went on to say her administration is focused on running a smooth and safe election.
“We’re going to get this right, it will be soon after polls closed,” she stated. “I’m not going to put a number on it, but we’re going to get it right.”

Whitmer said as long as ballots are postmarked by November 3, officials will count the ballots. She’s confident in her administration’s ability to squash possible voting fraud and that Michiganders will turnout to vote in historic proportions.
