State review of Detroit write-in votes Tuesday

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (AP) -

The Board of State Canvassers will meet next week to go over about 18,000 uncounted write-in ballots from Detroit's Aug. 6 mayoral primary.

The meeting will begin Tuesday morning at state offices in Detroit.

Wayne County canvassers referred the ballots to the state because they were tallied numerically instead of with hash marks. The election has yet to be certified.

County Sheriff Benny Napoleon and former medical center chief Mike Duggan finished far ahead of the other candidates and still will face each other in the November general election.

Unofficial results showed Duggan received 44,395 write-in votes. A residency issue forced his name off the primary ballot.

County canvassers have said they counted about 24,000 valid votes for Duggan and about 28,300 for Napoleon, a former Detroit police chief.
