The reelection campaign of President Donald Trump has filed a lawsuit in Michigan's Court of Claims demanding a stop to ballot counting in
Michigan "until meaningful access has been provided" to monitor the method of ballot counting, but the claims are countered by Democratic officials in Michigan.
"We also insist that all ballots that are opened and counted be
checked while we have no substantive access," the campaign said in a statement.
The campaign said that access to "numerous counting sites" to
witness the procedure "as promised by Michigan statute" had been withheld.
As votes in Michigan continue to be tallied, as we already knew it would be, the
presidential race in the state remains incredibly close, "said Bill Stepien, campaign manager for Trump's 2020 campaign."
The statement from the campaign did not mention the sites where access
was refused, and a copy of the complaint was not immediately available.
