According to Fox 2 News:
- Wayne County Board of Canvassers has deemed that Detroit mayoral candidate Benny Napoleon received more votes in the August Primary than candidate Mike Duggan.

Benny Napoleon released this statement regarding voting discrepancies during the Detroit Primary Election:
“A citizen’s vote is the cornerstone of Democracy, and people should be able to put their faith in their ballot.
“This is no small margin of error. This is very troubling and I believe it is cause for Detroit’s General Election to be overseen by the highest authority – either the Federal Elections Commission or the Department of Justice. Detroiters need to know their votes count and is not predicated on someone’s actions or inactions. We must protect our most sacred right at all costs.”
