Michigan Senate Will Not Vote On Tougher Voter ID Requirements This Term

Michigan’s Senate will not vote this term on tougher voter ID requirements or bills that would make the governor and lawmakers subject to public records requests.

The voting legislation would have changed the procedure for voters who don’t show photo identification at their polling place.

Right now, voters without an ID currently sign an affidavit before voting.

Under the bill, they could vote but would have to visit the local clerk’s office no later than 10 days after the election to ensure their ballot’s counted.

Democrats say Republicans are trying to suppress voters.

The GOP says it’s protecting election integrity.
