The Detroit Free Press reports that the City of Detroit recorded 782 more votes than there are voters in The Motor City

The Free Press reports:

In 248 precincts, there were a total of 782 more votes tabulated by voting machines than the number of voters listed as picking up ballots in the precincts’ poll books. That makes up just three-tenths of 1% of the total 248,211 votes that were logged in Detroit for the presidential election. That number was far too small to swing the statewide election results, even in this year’s especially tight race that saw a Republican win Michigan for the first time since George Bush in 1988.

The Detroit Free Press also reports that 382 Detroiters were listed as voting but their ballots never showed up in the count.

The extra votes almost certainly helped Clinton. Although Trump won Michigan by over 10,000 votes, Hillary Clinton defeated Trump by a considerable margin in Detroit, winning 95% of the vote in the city to his 3%.

The news comes only days after it was reported that possible voter fraud had been uncovered in 37% of Detroits voter precincts, with voting machines counting more votes than there were people who actually voted.
