The Michigan governor released a statement Thursday morning denouncing President Trumps suggestion that the November 2020 election should be postponed due to his mistrust of mail-in voting.
More American voters than ever are expected to participate in mail-in absentee voting this election season amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Trump tweeted Thursday: With Universal Mail-In Voting (not Absentee Voting, which is good), 2020 will be the most INACCURATE & FRAUDULENT Election in history.
The Secretary of State said absentee voting is on the rise following the approval of no-reason absentee voting in 2018 and is being emphasized as a safer option than in-person voting during the coronavirus pandemic.
