Make your plan to vote. Where is your voting precinct? How will you get there? Can you walk there? Or will you need to drive, call for a ride? Or share a ride? Remember to take 3 friends and remind 3 friends it is time to vote.


Voting is a privilege. Michigan Residents have the opportunity to vote without long lines or waiting hours in the sun under the threat of committing a crime if someone brings us a bottle of water. Right now, 39 anti-voter bills are waiting to be passed. Some of the bills are neutral, such as preregistration of 16 and 17-year-olds. Additional processing time for absentee ballots and 1 day of early voting and electronic military ballots submission is great.


But, some bills will add dropbox restrictions and strict voter ID laws. Some Bills address absentee voting, poll challengers, poll workers, and canvassers. If we are not careful, one day, even my blog could be considered illegal.


We have wonderful voter laws and election security in Michigan. I am so happy I can vote by mail if I want to or go to the polls. The Michigan Voter has voted in great voting opportunities for all of us. Stay informed, vote, and speak up for our voting rights in Michigan.


Thank you for reading the Vote Voiced Newsletter. Your time is important to us. We are honored you choose to give us your time today.
