What's new for voting in Michigan in 2024?

There are many changes to the voting process in Michigan in 2024 - early voting, more ballot drop boxes, and more!

Here is an article about the Michigan voting changes in 2024 written in December 2023 by attorneys at MichiganVoting which is a nonpartisan resource designed to help voters navigate Michigan’s voting laws, so that we can all successfully cast our ballots. Here is a link to the website for that organization

LWVGTA sponsored an educational program on September 19, 2023 discussing the Implementation of Proposal 2,

 Mackenzie Walz presented information about Proposal 2 – the Voting Policies in the Constitution Amendment – which was a citizen led proposal that was passed by a majority of Michigan voters on November 8, 2022. Proposal 2 will allow early voting, a permanent mail ballot list, drop boxes, enhanced ballot tracking, a new absentee ballot deadline for military and overseas voters and will supply prepaid postage on absentee ballots.

Watch the Proposal 2 program at Traverse Area Community Media, here.

Our presenter offered to send follow-up information for questions asked at the program. Click here for the follow-up answers.
