Major Voting Changes Being Considered for Upcoming General Election

Some major changes could be on the way for Michigan voters.

The state election board has given the green light to several voting initiatives to be included on the ballot for the upcoming general election.

Those initiatives include same-day voter registration, no-reason absentee voting and to re-instate the straight ticket voting option.

Voters will decide on all three in November.

Other items on the ballot will include the legalization of recreational marijuana and changes in how congressional and legislative districts are drawn.
