Michigan House Committee to Pass Two Anti-Voter Bills

These bills do nothing but increase barriers for voters to be heard by their government, particularly for seniors, the homeless, students, and low-income voters.

Michigan Senate Passes Trio of Anti-Voter Bills

Every Michigander deserves to be heard by their government, regardless of their age, race, political party, or zip code.

We urge the Michigan House to reject this partisan attack on Michigan voters’ constitutionally protected voting rights.
