A voting system that works for everyone
It’s simple – let’s make voting a sure thing. Every eligible person can vote and every vote will count. By making voting more accessible, secure and fair, our democracy will better serve all Americans and our laws will better reflect the will of the people. Everyone – Republicans, Democrats and Independents – deserves to have their vote secure and counted.
This amendment to the Michigan Constitution provides a common-sense approach to safeguarding our elections, puts voters first, and removes barriers for working families by:
Protecting the right to vote a secret ballot
Ensuring military service members and overseas voters get their ballots in time for their votes to count
Providing voters with the option to vote straight party
Automatically registering citizens to vote at the Secretary of State's office unless the citizen declines
Allowing a citizen to register to vote until 15 days before an election by mail or in person. After that, citizens may register to vote in person with proof of residency up to and on Election Day.
Providing all registered voters access to an absentee ballot for any reason
Ensuring the accuracy and integrity of elections by auditing election results
