The amendment for voting rights offers a common-sense
approach to safeguarding our elections & puts voters first:
- Protects the right to vote a secret ballot
- Ensures military service members overseas get their ballots in time for their votes to count
- Provides all registered voters equal access to an absentee ballot
- Allows citizens to register to vote closer to Election Day, as the majority of states do
- Provides voters with the option to vote straight party
- Automatically registers citizens to vote at the Secretary of State's office unless the citizen declines
- Creates fair rules that remove barriers and make voting more secure so we the people are heard on Election Day

Additionally, the LWV MI lawsuit against the Secretary of State office was decided by a federal 3-judge panel. The judges ruled that 27 of 34 districts were unfairly drawn. The panel also tasked the current legislature with redrawing lines by Aug 1st to accommodate the upcoming primary election.
Republicans are currently challenging the federal ruling at the Supreme Court. Stay tuned for updates.
