Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson is celebrating what she calls a safe and secure primary Election Day.

Outside of an incident in Inkster, where polling locations opened without electronic poll books to verify voters, Benson says there were no major issues reported to her office during Tuesday’s elections. She says officials worked with nonpartisan groups to address that problem quickly along with other minor concerns that popped up around the state.
