The Michigan Democratic Party released the following statement on behalf of Chair Lavora Barnes regarding the Court of Claims’ decision on guns at polling locations on Election Day.
“We are disappointed in today’s decision from the Court of Claims. Voters deserve the right to cast their ballot free from intimidation in any form. As Vice President Biden and Senator Harris have stated several times, ‘the soul of our nation is on the ballot this year.’ Michigan will have record turnout in 2020 regardless of the reluctance of any court to consider the best interest of the voter. We will continue to support Attorney General Nessel and Secretary of State Benson in their efforts to ensure that every voter can safely cast their ballot on November 3.”
