DETROIT (WKZO) -- The state says it will look into Detroit’s mayoral primary vote-counting controversy. The four-member State Board of Canvassers will likely meet early next week to discuss the matter. State Elections Director Chris Thomas says that an exact date has not yet been set.
Thomas says the board will only make a decision regarding the 18-thousand votes that weren’t counted. An issue arose after some polls books used numbers to record votes instead of marking them with hash-tag tallying.
