DETROIT – The American Civil Liberties Union of Michigan (ACLU) issues the following statement regarding the Michigan Senate Oversight Committee’s hearing today: 
“The Nov. 3 Election in Michigan was secure and accurate, and every eligible vote cast has been counted. Today’s state Senate Oversight hearing only sows distrust in our electoral system. 

“During a pandemic, poll workers, election officials, and community members courageously rose to the task to hold a fair and transparent election. More than 5.5 million Michiganders cast ballots in this election — one of the most secure and successful elections in our state’s history. 

“The people of Michigan have made their voices heard loud and clear: The outcome of the election has been decided.”
