Passing a law in Michigan in 2021 looks less like Schoolhouse Rock and more like schoolyard drama thanks to a loophole in our Constitution.
Michigan voters overwhelmingly chose to expand access to ballot boxes in 2018. Now a loophole is allowing the GOP to propose stripping these rights with just 3% of Michiganders pushing for it.
If Republicans pass these 39 bills, rights that helped Michiganders shatter voter turnout records during the pandemic would be stripped.
A conservative group boasted about the kind of influence bought by massive political donations letting them literally write the laws.
With the fallout of the 2020 election on her mind and 39 bills designed to restrict voter access in 2022, Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson takes on the challenge of defending democracy.
If Republicans want to make every vote truly equal, it's time for them to support the end of the Electoral College.
The 39 bills Republicans introduced to curtail voting rights in Michigan was aimed at Wayne County, says Sen. Erika Geiss, but it would hurt rural Michigan too.
