Re: @MiSenate adoption of #UnlockMichigan - 'The 460,00 voters who signed the petition represent about 11% of the 4.2m voters who participated in the 2018 gubernatorial election, which @GovWhitmer won with nearly 2.3 million votes' ~@bridgemi https://bit.ly/3z5JmnwClick To Tweet

 

Voter suppression

 

 

“Early this morning, Republicans voted to advance a bill to ban 24-hour voting, following an overnight committee hearing that lasted nearly 24 hours,” state Rep. Chris Turner (D) said in a statement. “You just can’t make this up: Republicans are passing anti-voter legislation overnight to prohibit Texans from casting a ballot overnight.” ~Source: Washington Post
