Statement from Republican Chairman Chupp of St Joseph County Michigan Tuesday May 24, 2022 5:00 PM

Elections must be honest, secure, and transparent. That is how American elections should always be conducted, a standard which we must strive to uphold! St. Joseph County is fortunate to have quality clerks in our county, townships, and cities who have worked diligently to ensure elections with integrity. Unfortunately, the process in some counties appears to be the opposite. It is important that EVERY LEGAL vote be counted. It is equally important that every vote’s legality be verified. That is fair, just, and necessary for confidence in the process.

Upholding the absolute integrity of the ballot box is the only way people can have confidence in our government and our elections.

We have a legal process that provides for the examination of the entire election process. Here in Michigan, serious questions regarding election fraud in the Greater Detroit Area must be thoroughly investigated. The St. Joseph County Republican Party is committed to protecting the fundamental principle at the heart of our Democratic Republic and that is one person, one vote.
