Michigan Election Materials Preservation

Leaf v. Whitmer

Lawsuit filed by the Barry County sheriff and individual voters against Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D), Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson (D) and the state board of elections seeking to maintain and preserve election data and machines for a post-election audit. The district court denied the plaintiffs’ motion for a restraining order and the plaintiffs voluntarily dismissed the case.

This case was one of the lawsuits former President Donald Trump and his allies brought in an effort to overturn the results of the 2020 election.
