In the upcoming November election there are several potential petitions that could be on the ballot if they gain enough signatures. We encourage you to be informed by further studying these proposals and exercise your constitutional rights by voting.
The four potential petitions that may be of particular interest are:
SECURE MI VOTE
The proposal would:
- Require voter ID for in-person voting and absentee ballot applications and eliminate an affidavit exemption currently allowed for in-person voting without ID.
- Require partial Social Security numbers for voter registration
- Require voters who don’t present ID in person to present it within six days after the election for the vote to be counted
- Bar unsolicited absentee ballot applications
- Ban outside funding for elections and restrict mail-in ballots
- Provide voters with hardships with free IDs funded by a $3 million state fund.
UNLOCK MI II
The measure would limit the length of emergency orders from state or local health officials to 28 days, unless extended by the state legislature or local governments.
LET MI KIDS LEARN
- There are two petitions:
(1) Establish a Student Opportunity Scholarship program to pay for K-12 public or private school tuition and fees, home-schooling materials and online learning programs for those with financial needs
- (2) Allow taxpayers to claim a tax credit for contributions made to the scholarship program.
