Stateside: Hillsdale Co. elections drama; UM Title IX policies; historical markers revisited

Hart Verity Voting Tabulator
State of Michigan
Adams Township election clerk Stephanie Scott was stripped of election oversight authority after she refused to allow maintenance to a Hart Veracity voting tabulator like this one. Scott feared the state could delete old election data from the machine. Past election data is not stored on tabulators.

Today on Stateside, a look at the University of Michigan’s new Title IX misconduct policies and at Gov. Whitmer’s calls for auto insurance fund to pay drivers back. Then, a discussion about the effort to update 1,700 historical markers across the state to tell a fuller story. And, local election drama in a southern Michigan township, where a clerk who refused to turn over election equipment for a routine software check lost her oversight of this week’s vote.
