The League of Women Voters also supported a yes vote on Proposal 3 which will appeared on our ballots as follows:
Statewide Proposal 18-3
A proposal to authorize automatic and Election Day voter registration, no-reason absentee voting, and straight ticket voting; and add current legal requirements for military and overseas voting and postelection audits to the Michigan Constitution
This proposed constitutional amendment would allow a United States citizen who is qualified to vote in Michigan to:
Should this proposal be adopted? [ ] YES [ ] NO
If passed, this amendment to the Michigan constitution would make voting convenient for all eligible Michiganders and protect the security and privacy of our individual votes.
Everyone -- Republicans, Democrats and Independents -- deserves to have their vote secure and counted.
We need a voting system that works for all citizens in Michigan. Period.
From working parents who struggle with long voting lines, far-away polling places and no time off work to vote, to people who frequently move for jobs or military service, we need to set up our system so that every eligible Michigander can have their voice heard on Election Day.
The good news is that the fix to our election system isn’t a hard one. We can ensure all eligible Americans have access to a secure vote, an up-to-date system and accurate voter lists. In fact, most of these reforms in this constitutional amendment have been in existence for decades in other states. The citizens of Michigan deserve the same access to the ballot enjoyed by other citizens across this country.
