Michigan Criminal Voting Challenges

July 21, 2020

Challenge to two Michigan voting restrictions. The first is Michigan’s restriction on the transportation of voters. The second law is Michigan’s restriction on absentee ballot applications which requires an individual that assists another voter with an absentee ballot application to affirm that she did not “solicit or request to return the application,” and prohibits an individual from assisting another voter in returning their application unless the individual is a registered voter in Michigan or a member of the voter’s immediate family or household.
