At long last, some voting stability seems to be coming to the great state of Michigan.
During the 2020 presidential election, the state came under fire for many questionable voting practices, a big one being the absolute onslaught of absentee ballots that were sent out without request throughout the entire state.
I live in Michigan, and at my house, we received 11 ballots that we didn’t ask for…in a house with only 3 people.
And there was much more than just that…
But the GOP-led Michigan legislature is now fighting back against these outrageous policies and just brilliantly sidestepped Gretchen Whitmer to make it happen.
The GOP there is proposing many common-sense bills to combat fraud, including enhanced voter ID laws, as well as stricter absentee ballot practices.
LANSING, Mich. (AP) — The GOP-controlled Legislature is planning a maneuver that would enable it to pass contentious election changes into law and effectively nullify a likely veto from the state’s Democratic governor, a top Michigan Republican said.
Ron Weiser, chair of the state Republican Party, told activists Thursday that the party will spearhead a ballot initiative assuming Gov. Gretchen Whitmer vetoes new bills that Democrats and voting-rights groups say would suppress voting. Under state law, lawmakers can enact such initiatives without a gubernatorial veto or let them go to a public vote.
Weiser said the “election integrity” bills — which would, among other things, require photo ID, restrict absentee ballot drop box hours and ban prepaid postage on return envelopes — would ensure there is a “fair” election in 2022. Despite claims from former President Donald Trump and his allies, there was no widespread fraud in the high-turnout 2020 election, when Joe Biden defeated Trump in Michigan by 154,000 votes, or 2.8 percentage points.
Weiser said the party will pay county GOP parties to gather the roughly 340,000 valid voter signatures needed for the measure to be certified.
Bravo to the GOP in Michigan for fighting against these injustices.
After all this, I don’t see how Whitmer can find a work-around.
