LANSING — The Michigan Democratic Party released the following statement on behalf of Chair Lavora Barnes.
“Michigan Republicans will try every trick in the book to confuse and intimidate voters. They want fewer people to vote because they just discovered what we have always known, when people vote, Democrats win. That is what this ballot proposal is all about, creating barriers to voting so fewer people have access to the polls. Michiganders have already spoken on this issue when more than 66% of voters passed proposal 3 in 2018. The GOP playbook of losing, lying, and attempting to cheat their way into office is getting old. It has been more than 300 days since the 2020 election, and while Democrats have gotten to work helping Michiganders, the GOP simply can’t accept defeat.”
