Following a brief discussion, Michigan’s bipartisan Board of State Canvassers recently unanimously voted to certify the August primary elections. Prior to their meeting, the bipartisan boards of county canvassers in the state’s 83 counties also certified the primary elections that took place in their jurisdictions.

The now certified results of the primary elections determine many of the candidates who will be on ballots in the November 8 general election. The candidates certified by the Board are now included on a candidate listing found at list of candidates will change as candidates are nominated by political party conventions and filing officials make eligibility determinations.
