Republican members of Board of State Canvassers vote to deny Michigan voters opportunity to decide on Proposal 2 this November

The Michigan Democratic Party released the following statement on behalf of Chair Lavora Barnes, regarding the Board of State Canvassers failure to certify Proposal 2 – “Promote the Vote 2022” initiative petition for the November election. 

“I am thoroughly disappointed that Republicans have undermined Michigan voters’ right to decide on whether to strengthen our state’s voting rights and adopt this voter-friendly ballot initiative.

Voting is a precious and fundamental right in our democracy, and every eligible voter should be given the opportunity to decide whether or not to support ‘Promote the Vote 2022’ this November. Thousands of voters signed petitions for this ballot initiative and, regardless of political affiliation, we should all support voter access and encourage citizen participation in Michigan’s free and fair elections.”
