MI Bd of State Canvassers appears poised to deadlock 2-2 on disqualifying five #MIGOP candidates from the August primary ballot. According to MI Bureau of Elections, a tie vote means candidates do NOT make the ballot.

Welp, they've adjourned, despite Democratic objections. They're not coming back until Tuesday, June 7. They're not in session for the same week of the Mackinac Policy Conference.
