Michigan AG's office opposes ruling to stall Detroit election count

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- The Michigan attorney general's office plans to oppose a judge's ruling that has temporarily halted the tabulation of 18,000 uncounted write-in ballots from the Aug. 6 Detroit mayoral primary.
 
Michigan elections spokesman Fred Woodhams said Friday the AG's office planned a filing later in the day.
 
It's a response to Ingham County Circuit Judge Joyce Draganchuk's issuance Thursday of a temporary restraining order preventing state elections workers from completing their count. A hearing is scheduled for Tuesday.
 
At issue is the number of write-ins cast for ex-Detroit Medical Center CEO Mike Duggan, who finished second to Wayne County Sheriff Benny Napoleon in the primary.
 
Regardless of the outcome of the count, they'll face off in November's general election.
 
Detroit city clerk candidate D. Etta Wilcoxon filed to stop the count.
