Republican State Senators plan to evade Whitmer’s veto
Republican State Senators have proposed 30+ bills (Senate Bills 273-311) whose net effect would suppress Michiganders’ access to voting.
Their measures, demanding voter ID, and restricting drop boxes, postage for absentee ballots, and new voting machines among other items, are designed to make it increasingly difficult for the poor and people of color to vote.
This is a serious abrogation of democracy: Governor Whitmer won by about 2.3 million votes, yet 340,047 signatures could negate the authority granted to her by the majority of voters. – Bridge
