Resolution Regarding November 2020 Election

Given the urgency of assuring the inviolability of the vote, we demand the
Michigan Legislature initiate a full forensic audit -- supported by a hand recount --
of the votes cast in all counties in our state to determine what transpired during
the November 2020 general election. This must be a prerequisite to the official
certification of our state vote.

As our elected representatives, it is your responsibility to protect the integrity and
security of the vote and to guarantee that our constitutional rights are upheld.
Article II, Section 4 of the Michigan Constitution states:
§ 4 Place and manner of elections.
Sec. 4. (1) Every citizen of the United States who is an elector qualified to
vote in Michigan shall have the following rights:

(h) The right to have the results of statewide elections audited, in such a
manner as prescribed by law, to ensure the accuracy and integrity of

All rights set forth in this subsection shall be self-executing. This
subsection shall be liberally construed in favor of voters' rights in order to
effectuate its purposes. Nothing contained in this subsection shall prevent
the legislature from expanding voters' rights beyond what is provided
herein. This subsection and any portion hereof shall be severable. If any
portion of this subsection is held invalid or unenforceable as to any person
or circumstance, that invalidity or unenforceability shall not affect the
validity, enforceability, or application of any other portion of this

Every single legal vote cast by Michigan voters should be counted and illegal
"votes" discarded.
In light of the mounting sworn affidavit allegations of vote processing and
tabulation error, irregularity and fraud in the Michigan general 2020 election, and
the analyses from IT experts attesting to deficiencies and vulnerabilities of the
Dominion voting system used in Michigan, it is incumbent upon our State
Legislature to defer official vote certification until a full and transparent forensic
audit of the vote in Michigan has been completed. In order for the audit to be
meaningful and effective, it must be supported by a hand recount overseen and
verified by poll watchers and attorneys of both parties and filmed for full
It is now known that prior to and subsequent to the November general election,
warnings by cybersecurity experts were sounded as to the flaws and
vulnerabilities of internal and external manipulation of the voting system used in
our state and around the country. As has been reported, the state of Texas
rejected the Dominion system after expert witness documentation and repeated
trial runs demonstrated multiple deficiencies of the system.
In fact, less than a month prior to the presidential election, U.S. District Judge Amy
Totenberg, in a case before her in Georgia, recognized the risks associated with
the new Dominion voting system, writing of “serious system security vulnerability
and operational issues that may place Plaintiffs and other voters at risk of
deprivation of their fundamental right to cast an effective vote that is accurately
We call upon you to follow the lead of Senators Lana Theis and Tom Barrett, to
trigger a statewide forensic vote audit. We couldn't agree more with your
colleagues, who wrote:
“Every citizen deserves to have faith in the integrity of the election process and
its outcome. It is our responsibility, as elected public servants, to assure the
people of Michigan of the process’s integrity through complete transparency and
the faithful investigation of any allegations of wrongdoing, fraud, or abuse.”
The only way to ascertain whether the ballots cast in our state were processed
and tabulated in a manner fully consistent with an open, free, fair and accurate
election is to conduct a thorough investigation of the process, central to which is
an independent forensic audit. The vote audit is a right enshrined in our state
constitution which cannot be abrogated. It must now be exercised to ensure that
the voting process and tabulation systems were in no way contaminated nor
Public companies, corporations, school districts, and charitable organizations are
among the entities which must undergo an audit to fulfill their fiduciary
responsibilities to their stakeholders. Likewise, it is thus incumbent upon you, our
elected officials, to carry out a constitutionally-prescribed vote audit in fulfillment
of your fiduciary responsibilities to the citizenry of Michigan. Augmenting this vital
information-gathering will be what we hope will be continuing oversight
hearings. We urge our state legislature to deploy all resources at their disposal
to conduct a robust investigation, addressing serious and relevant concerns,
including connectivity and routing issues that may have had the potential to leave
the system susceptible to improper access and/or interference.
All eyes are on our state of Michigan -- and on our state legislature -- to do the
right thing in this fraught and destabilizing situation. If the outcomes of
elections cannot be reliable and verifiable, they cannot be certifiable. You
must act immediately to restore full faith and confidence in our electoral
process. Free and fair elections and the rule of law underpin the survival of our
The Executive Committee and Officers of the Fourteenth Congressional

conviction and the utmost of dispatch to fully execute your duties in preservation
of the sanctity of the vote and the future of our free republic, and in
representation of the electorate you swore to serve.
