Michigan Secretary of State makes push for major election reform
LANSING, Mich. – Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson pushed for sweeping changes to the state’s elections on Monday. There could be some changes coming to Election Day itself. He said making Election Day a holiday to make it easier to vote and volunteer is also part of the legislative agenda. Such as requiring absentee ballot applications be mailed to every registered voter, allowing clerks to start processing ballots two weeks before Election Day and allowing mail-in ballots postmarked by Election Day or just after to be counted. She also called on Republicans, without naming them, who have been spreading falsehoods about the state’s election process to stop.
