Michigan Association of County Clerks supports Antrim County

The Michigan Association of County Clerks (MACC) is calling for citizens and activists to accept the November 2020 election results in Michigan, including Antrim County, as proper.

Democratic and Republican members of MACC affirm that the issue was the result of an innocent human error, not the equipment, causing the election night results to be temporarily reported incorrectly.
