Garlin Gilchrist II statement regarding Detroit City Clerk election results
November 8, 2017-“We launched this campaign to make sure transparency was returned to the election process in the City of Detroit.
After reviewing the unofficial returns and hearing troubling accounts from voters about their experiences, there are questions about yesterday’s election that give us concern about the vote tallies. We are looking into these issues and doing our due diligence and expect to make a decision in the next few days whether to file for a recount.
I strongly believe that Detroit voters need to know their vote was counted and counted accurately.
Regardless of the final result, I strongly believe that we all need to have trust in our election system especially going into the 2018 cycle and I want to do what’s in the best interest of Detroit voters.”
