Proponents of ballot proposal say it will remove barriers to voting for Michiganders

Sep 26, 2018

During a press conference at LINC’s headquarters Madison and Hall, Daniel Krueger, a retired, Republican Ottawa County Clerk made his case for passing Prop 3, saying it’s a good move towards democracy because it removes barriers to the vote. 

“There are many instances where people don’t have the ability to get to the precinct on election day. Our society has changed. We are a more mobile society. We have both parents in families that are working, and things need to change with that change in society.” 

Prop 3 would automatically register citizens at the Secretary of State, allow individuals to register at any time even on day of election, and provide all registered voters with an absentee ballot for any reason. This initiative is being led by Promote the Vote and supported by the ACLU, LINC Up, and the League of Women Voters in Michigan.  

On November 6th, voters will be tasked with deciding to approve the following three proposals: ending gerrymandering, legalizing recreational marijuana and promote the vote.
