Michigan voters will still be able to vote for a political party’s entire slate of ballots with a single mark on the ballot. A federal appeals court said so today (Wed.)
Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette.
Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette has set the stage for the next step in the fight over straight-ticket voting. A federal judge last week blocked Republican efforts to stop voters from using a single mark on the ballot to support a political party’s entire slate of candidates.
A bill to allow no-reason absentee voting in Michigan could have a tough time in the state Senate.
The state House approved House Bill 4724 late Wednesday night. It also tied the bill to one eliminating the straight-ticket voting option on Michigan ballots. That means one bill can’t become law without the other.
