Zorn comments on House and Senate oversight committees’ action on elections integrity

LANSING, Mich. — Sen. Dale Zorn, R-Ida, issued the following statement on the House and Senate oversight committees voting on Saturday to issue a subpoena to the Michigan Bureau of Elections for records regarding the elections process:

“I strongly support the committees’ actions and work to protect the fairness, openness and accuracy of our elections.

“We are a nation of the people, by the people and for the people. Critical to that founding principle is that the people have a voice to pick their leaders, and we must do everything we can to preserve that right and ensure that the Michigan people can trust the outcome.

“The legislative oversight committees are acting quickly to protect the integrity of our elections. This is about doing proper oversight of one of our most cherished rights, not about overturning the election results.

“I look forward to the committees completing this important review as soon as possible and, if necessary, working with them to make any needed changes to ensure our state’s elections system is the best in the country.”
