The guidance had restricted communication for poll challengers and their use of electronic devices.

Michigan officials are working to get everyone on the same page as we hit the two-week mark before the election Colin Jackson has more.

The state says part of that work includes appealing a recent ruling against guidance it issued earlier this year on handling poll challengers.

Department of State spokesperson Jake Rollow says that’s to get further understanding on the ruling.
