#Recount2016 begins TODAY in Michigan


Great news! The federal court ordered that the recount needs to start by noon today in order to protect Michigan voters’ constitutional rights. The recount will begin at noon today at the following two sites:

Ingham County
Ingham County Fairgrounds, Main Arena Building
700 East Ash Street Mason MI 48854

Oakland County
Oakland Intermediate School District
2111 Pontiac Lake Road Waterford Twp, MI 48328

If you have already completed an in-person or online training and are able to report to either the Ingham or Oakland sites at noon, please do so.

Note that at least six other sites will begin recounting tomorrow, including Wayne County, and several more sites will begin recounting Wednesday. If you are planning to observe at one of the sites not listed above, then hold off until we get information about those sites out to you via email updates.

Check out our facebook page for the most up-to-date information about recount sites.

If you haven’t signed up to volunteer, submit your information via our google form. When we know the start date and time of the site you sign up for we will email or call you.

If you have additional questions email volunteer@recountmichigan.com.

Thank you for your patience and flexibility as we mobilize our recount review operation.
