In Michigan the people voted BY REFERENDUM to have no cause absentee balloting. The gop is trying to reverse it.

Can’t get the story straight. Let the people decide. We lost. Don’t let the people decide

No they are not.

They ARE making some changes to “make voting easier and cheating harder”, some of which seem fine to me, others are a bit of a wtf at a cursory glance. I have not studied it in depth. What I don’t see is any attempt to reverse the referendum. That would take a State Constitutional Amendment which would require another referendum which I don’t see anywhere on the horizon.

Could be wrong though if you want to point the error of my ways without some smarmy comment that doesn’t actually point out any necessary corrections :)

“ The proposals drawing the most ire would introduce new identification requirements for requesting absentee ballots, prohibit the secretary of state from making absentee ballot applications available online, ban clerks from supplying prepaid return postage for absentee ballots, bar clerks from counting absentee ballots in the weeks leading up to the election and impose new requirements for ballot drop boxes.”

You could be wrong.
