Audit a ‘relief,’ county clerk says

Linda Gallagher

BELLAIRE — It was a huge relief to Antrim County Clerk Sheryl Guy to receive word from the State of Michigan last week that the State's Bureau of Elections would conduct an audit of the presidential election in Antrim County. 

It was even more of a relief, not to mention vindicating, for the clerk when the recount held at the Kearney Township Hall outside of the village of Bellaire on Thursday, Dec. 17 proved that the county's Dominion Voting Systems had worked as intended. 

"This has been a godsend,” Guy said following the announcement of the audit results Thursday afternoon. “The numbers proved that the tabulators from Antrim County's 16 different precincts worked. There’s no reason to have further concerns about fraud because there wasn’t any.”

The audit, a hand count of all Antrim County votes cast for presidential candidates in the Nov. 3 general election, took place in response to accusations of fraud from a Central Lake Township resident, Bill Bailey, who filed suit on Nov. 23 in Antrim County's 13th Circuit Court.
