Way to go Michigan!
They’re really clamping down on Whitmer’s plans to drag this election out for as long as possible.
Whitmer recently stated that she’s not going to set any deadlines for when ballots need to be counted by:
“Michigan will be able to announce results, but we are not going to have artificial deadlines set by, you know, people with political agendas,” she said. “We’re gonna get this right.”
“It will be soon after polls close,” she added. “I’m not gonna put a number on it, but we’re gonna get it right.”Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson (D) has said the battleground state that President Trump won in 2016 will not be able to report the election results on Nov. 3.
Well, this latest ruling by the state’s appeals court just put a big damper on her ballot counting scheme.
They just ruled out counting Michigan’s late ballots and are requiring all of them to be submitted on November 3rd, by no later than 8pm.
Lansing — Michigan voters must have their absentee ballots to local clerks no later than 8 p.m. Nov. 3 after a state Court of Appeals panel on Friday overruled a lower court that had made allowances for late ballots.
Friday’s appellate ruling also overturned a decision that would have allowed third parties to collect absentee ballots from voters in a three-day window ahead of Election Day.
The ruling caused Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson’s office to urge voters to mail in their absentee ballots no later than Monday in a bid to compensate for any delays in the mail system.
If a voter misses the Monday deadline, he or she should hand-deliver the ballot to the local clerk’s office or a designated drop box, her office recommended.
Then to make matters even worse, it looks like early voting in three majorly blue counties in the state are behind in Democrat votes compared to 2016.
This should wrap up MI for Trump. Today's news that the three big D counties are behind 2016 in early votes, plus Trafalgar's poll should begin to wrap this up. https://t.co/1u2raDL64B

Michigan is a big state for Biden and so far, things really aren’t looking too good for him there.
Looks like Gretchen won’t be able to save him after all.
