Earlier this week, the House passed a series of bills many say will limit people's access to vote in Michigan. According to opponents of the proposals, Senate Bills 751, 754 and 803 create unnecessary requirements that do nothing to promote fair and safe elections and create unreasonable and burdensome requirements on organizations that are critical in assisting citizens to register to vote.
"I could not support these bills because the outcome of this legislation could result in suppressing the rights of many eligible voters throughout the state. Good government is only possible when its constituents have a voice in the policies and decisions affecting their lives, and these legislative changes could limit citizens' participation in government at all levels. All the while, our neighboring states are expanding voter access with legislation like no-reason absentee and early voting," said State Rep. George Darany (D-Dearborn). Darany introduced House Bill 4108, that helps increase voter access to absentee voting
