The League of Women Voters in the Brighton/Howell Area of Michigan
Promote the Vote is a proposal we would vote on in November of 2018 if enough signatures are collected and approved to put it on the ballot. 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.
You can help by signing a petition so we can vote on this ballot proposal, invite us to come to an event that you are sponsoring so others can sign as well - or learn how to circulate a petition yourself.
