(CBS Detroit) — Michigan’s Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson announced the completion of the state’s election audits.

Benson said, “I’m here today to announce the completion of the most comprehensive series of audits ever conducted in the state of Michigan. More than 250 audits conducted across the state with the vast majority led by county clerks who received tremendous support and complete transparency from city and township clerks. In all, more than 1,3000 republican, democratic and non-partisan clerks, as well as the State Bureau of Elections, participated in this historic endeavor.”
