The dispute over certifying election results in Wayne County last November could be a sign of things to come, as Republicans look to get Trump supporters onto local boards of canvassers.

Members of county boards of canvassers don’t often find themselves in the political spotlight, but that changed after the 2020 election. Now, some local chapters of the Michigan Republican Party are looking at county boards as potential battlegrounds for the next election, too.

GUEST:

Craig Mauger, Detroit News reporter

You can find Mauger's article about local GOP chapters remaking county boards of canvassers here.
