Daniel Krueger, former Ottawa County Clerk for 36 years, announced his support for Proposal 3, also known as the ‘Promote the Vote’ ballot initiative. The ballot proposal would amend the state’s constitution to secure voting changes regardless of which party is in power in the state of Michigan.
DELTA TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — Michigan voters this fall will decide if the state should allow same-day registration, no-reason absentee ballots and straight-ticket voting after the certification Thursday of a third and final initiative for the statewide ballot.

The group behind the voting rights constitutional amendment pulled in $1.5 million in the past quarter, bringing the total raised by Promote the Vote to $2.7 million.
A big chunk of that is from the national ACLU in New York, which has now poured in $2.2 million total for the campaign.
Promote the Vote has also benefited from the UAW and its $150,000 contribution, and another $100,000 is from Campaign for Democracy, which is listed at a Los Angeles address. Denise Ilitch, listed as president of Ilitch Enterprises, also chipped in $1,000 to Promote the Vote.
