Michigan’s Election Reform Bills: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly
April 29 @ 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Recently, the Michigan Senate introduced 39 bills (SB 273 through 311) seeking new election regulations and restrictions because of, what some believe to be, voter fraud or misconduct during the 2020 election. Content of the bills include new identification requirements for requesting absentee ballots, prohibiting the Secretary of State from making absentee applications available online and new requirements for ballot drop boxes. Throughout the state, supporters have claimed that the bills will make it easier to vote and more difficult to cheat, while opponents have said that the bills are racist and will restrict voting.
To explain what the legislation contains, as well as how it will affect Michiganders, we are pleased to present the following panelists: Sharon Dolente, Senior Advisor, Promote the Vote; Jonathan Oosting, Political Reporter, Bridge; and Justin Roebuck, County Clerk/Register of Deeds, Ottawa County.
Hosted in partnership with the Jewish Community Relations Council/American Jewish Committee, Coalition for Black and Jewish Unity, Promote the Vote, NAACP Michigan and National Council of Jewish Women, Michigan.
