Promote the Vote appeals to MI Supreme Court for ballot berth
Trying to get a question on the November ballot.
The Michigan Supreme Court has been asked to decide whether a proposed voting rights amendment to the state constitution will appear on the November ballot.
The campaign to expand voting rights is challenging a deadlock on a state elections board that’s blocking the proposal from the ballot.
The Promote the Vote campaign says it has followed the law and submitted more than 664 thousand signatures to qualify. That’s well past the 425-thousand valid signature threshold.
The opposition says the Promote the Vote petition failed to enumerate all the parts of the state constitution that would be repealed if the amendment is adopted by voters. This is one of two petition campaigns expected to file a challenge. The campaign to add an abortion rights amendment to the constitution is also trying to get a question on the November ballot.
