League of Women Voters of Michigan supports the ballot initiative Promote the Vote 2022
“The League joined other voting rights advocacy groups and launched a ballot initiative aimed at ensuring that we have a voting system that works for everyone. “Promote the Vote 2022 provides common sense voting policies to move Michigan forward,” said Christina Schlitt, co-president of LWVMI. “Michiganders want secure and accessible elections, we want people to be able to vote without fear of intimidation, and we want to be confident that our votes will be counted. This ballot initiative takes a great step towards modernizing our elections and protecting our freedom to vote.” The initiative includes public funding and resources to help local election officials do their jobs including funding for postage for absentee ballots and ballot tracking, and secure ballot dropboxes for every 15,000 voters in a municipality. The initiative will also preserve the authority of local governments to accept funding from publicly disclosed, public and charitable sources.” More information on the League of Women Voters of Michigan advocacy for 2022 can be found at the League website.

“From the beginning, the League has been an activist, grassroots organization whose leaders believed that citizens should play a critical role in advocacy. It was then, and is now, a nonpartisan organization.” Discover more about the history of the League of Women Voters at the League’s website.
