GM, Ford CEOs voice opposition to voting restrictions in Michigan and other states
The leaders of major Michigan-based companies, including General Motors and Ford, have signed a statement expressing support for “equitable access to the ballot” and opposition to “actions that reduce participation in elections.” This statement was issued as the Republican-led Michigan Senate begins to consider a slate of proposals which opponents claim will make voting harder. These proposals include requiring photo ID to vote in person and request an absentee ballot and restricting access to ballot drop boxes.
Young adults will be the nation’s largest voting bloc in the upcoming election and the National Voter Education Week plans to equip them with the tools and information they need to cast a ballot this fall.
A voting initiative started by several Black athletes and artists combatting systemic and racist voter suppression. This initiative aims at educating, energizing, and protecting the Black community’s right to vote.
