Prop 2 will protect our elections from Republican MAGA extremism

LANSING — Today, Governor Gretchen Whitmer signed a crucial voting access & rights package known as Proposition 2, which was overwhelmingly passed by ballot initiative last November. These new laws ensure the voices of all Michiganders are heard while maintaining the sanctity and security of our elections.

“Michiganders made it clear last November that they want free and fair elections, and now, Democrats are keeping our promises and ensuring that every voice is heard,” said Michigan Democratic Party Chair Lavora Barnes. “This legislation will allow us to preserve the foundations of our democracy and build a government that fights for all Michiganders. We are so proud to be leading the charge on making our elections more accessible, instead of falling victim to the conspiracy theories and chaos that the GOP continues to embrace.”

While Republicans are continuing to embrace MAGA extremism and support putting up barriers to the ballot box at every turn, this bill package is a historic move towards a brighter, more democratic Michigan for all, as it expands the accessibility of absentee ballots, early voting, and ballot drop boxes, without compromising the security of our elections. This win is just another example of the Democratic commitment to improving the lives of all Michiganders.
