The official wording of Michigan’s voting proposal
The official wording of a proposal as it appears on Michigan’s ballot to expand voting methods and options:
A proposal to authorize automatic and Election Day voter registration, no-reason absentee voting, and straight ticket voting; and add current legal requirements for military and overseas voting and post-election audits to the Michigan Constitution. This proposed constitutional amendment would allow a United States citizen who is qualified to vote in Michigan to:
— Become automatically registered to vote when applying for, updating or renewing a driver’s license or state-issued personal identification card, unless the person declines.
— Simultaneously register to vote with proof of residency and obtain a ballot during the 2-week period prior to an election, up to and including Election Day.
— Obtain an absent voter ballot without providing a reason.
— Cast a straight-ticket vote for all candidates of a particular political party when voting in a partisan general election.
