The state board of canvassers will be in Detroit on Tuesday to officially certify the Detroit mayoral primary election.
This follows a motion to the Appeals Court Friday filed by Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette to have Ingham County Circuit Court Judge Joyce Draganchuk's temporary restraining order reversed.
Draganchuk's order was made Thursday and called for workers with the state Department of Elections to cease tabulations of uncounted write-in ballots from the city's contentious primary. A hearing on the order had been scheduled for Tuesday.
State canvassers will receive a summary report Tuesday on the write-in tabulations and certify the primary results.
Regardless of who the official primary winner is Benny Napoleon and Mike Duggan are still set to face off in the general election in November.
