FACT CHECK: Hundreds of Pro-Trump Ballots Have Been Recovered in Rural Michigan City

A recent tweet by independent journalist Jordan Epperson has gone viral after being retweeted by Donald Trump Jr. In his tweet, Epperson indicates that it is not just urban communities in Michigan that are problematic in the state with regards to electoral integrity, but also rural areas as well.

Michigan state representative Shane Hernandez initially discovered that a precinct in the small town of Marysville had a voter turnout that was roughly 35 percent lower than neighboring precincts.

St. Clair County Clerk Jay DeBoyer performed an investigation as a result of Hernandez’s findings, and he discovered that the absentee ballots in the precinct were not counted because of a mistake that was made in the clerk’s office. After the mistake was corrected, Trump gained an additional 500 votes.
