Michigan Canvass Board Member to Newsmax: ‘Need Evidence’ to Delay Certification

Norm Shinkle, one of the two Republicans on the four-person state Board of Canvassers in Michigan, told Newsmax Saturday he could vote Monday to delay certification of the state’s 16 electoral votes for Joe Biden pending more information about possible miscounting and voter fraud.

“I can vote yes or no on certification and I could vote to delay certification,” said Shinkle, a Williamston (Mich.) attorney and 8th District Republican chairman, “But before I do that, I need the evidence [of errors in the vote-count] and I need it in 48 hours.”

Shinkle said he has carefully watched President Trump’s legal team — Sydney Powell, Rudy Giuliani, and former Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline—“and I want to see what they have in terms of hard evidence.”

Shinkle, whose wife Mary was an observer at the Wayne County (Detroit) vote count that is the hub of the controversy over who won Michigan, said he personally “had a lot of questions about Dominion Voting Systems [the company that manufactures most of the voting machines used in Michigan] and about the role of the “Rock the Vote” [Democratic turnout organization].”

Under state election law, the votes in Michigan are certified by the Board of Canvassers and its bipartisan membership [two Democrats and two Republicans).

The other Republican on the Board beside Shinkle is state House Republican Caucus attorney Aaron Van Langevelde. The two Democrats are Jeannette Bradshaw, recording secretary of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 58, and Macomb County Commissioner Julie Matuzak, former political director of the American Federation of Teachers.
