LANSING, MI, January 19, 2021 –Michigan Freedom Fund Executive Director Tony Daunt today was selected to serve a four-year term on the Michigan Board of State Canvassers. Daunt was selected to serve by Governor Gretchen Whitmer from a field of three nominees provided by Michigan Republican Party Chair Laura Cox.
The Board of State Canvassers is tasked with canvassing and certifying statewide elections, elections for legislative districts that cross county lines, and many judicial offices. It is also responsible for conducting recounts for state-level offices, canvassing nominating petitions, ballot proposal petitions, assigning ballot designations, adopting ballot language for statewide ballot proposals and more.
“I appreciate the nomination from Chairwoman Cox and the appointment by Governor Whitmer,” said Daunt. “The Board of State Canvassers requires leaders willing to follow the rule of law and to provide honest leadership, and I am honored to be entrusted with this position. Aaron Van Langevelde served with honor and integrity, and the entire state owes him a debt of gratitude. Our republic depends on fair and secure elections and I’m committed to upholding those values.”
