Chicago, IL (November 4, 2020) – Alliance for the Great Lakes President & CEO Joel Brammeier released the following statement in reaction to yesterday’s election:

“Great Lakes voices count. And this election is not over until each vote has been tallied. 

All eyes are on the Great Lakes region as Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania complete their vote counts. Engaging in the democratic process is one of the most powerful ways people throughout the Great Lakes region can have a voice on issues they care about. 

A slow election does not mean an inaccurate one. Every vote must be counted and election officials must take the time to ensure that election rules are applied fairly.”
