Initiative changing state voting rules to begin gathering signatures after canvassers’ OK

A Michigan organization known as Secure MI Vote has received approval from the Michigan Board of State Canvassers to begin collecting signatures for a proposal to change a number of Michigan voting laws and strengthen identification requirements for voters. If 340,047 valid signatures are acquired within 180 days, the proposals may be submitted to the Michigan Legislature, and if approved by that body, would not require Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s signature to become law. A voting rights advocacy organization known as Voters Not Politicians opposes the proposed policies.
