Michigan clerk who doubts election results faces recall

Stephanie Scott, a small town clerk accused of improperly handling voting equipment after casting doubt on President Joe Biden’s election victory faces a recall election Tuesday in one of Michigan’s most conservative counties. Scott allegedly refused to allow a contractor to perform preventive maintenance on election equipment and failed to conduct accuracy tests, among other issues. She was stripped of her duties in October 2021. When the Hillsdale County clerk’s office eventually seized an election tabulator and a voter assist terminal, they discovered the tabulator’s tablet had been removed. It was later seized by Michigan State Police after Scott allegedly refused to turn it over. Scott told The Detroit News that she did not trust other officials to maintain custody of the data. Scott is one of many election officials across the country accused of mishandling voting equipment in an attempt to uncover fraud.
