Southfield City Clerk charged with 6 election law felonies

Southfield City Clerk Sherikia Hawkins was charged Monday with six election fraud felonies in connection with the November 2018 election.

Hawkins, 38, allegedly altered 193 absentee voter records, but the changes did not have an impact on the election results in the city, Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson said.

"I want to be clear, the allegations that the Southfield clerk falsified official election records did not alter the outcome of any election," she said. "There were no races that were won or lost as a result, and there were no voters who are disenfranchised. All valid votes in the election were ultimately counted and the final official vote total was accurate."

According to a Michigan State Police affidavit describing the crime, Oakland County elections officials discovered the issue during a post-election audit of Southfield's election results.
