Michigan saw major wins for voting rights in 2018: the passage of a ballot measure that created such positive changes as same-day registration, and no-excuse absentee voting. As these reforms come to life in 2020, All Voting is Local is working with our partners on the ground now to ensure:
- State and county officials carry out the reforms of 2018 to the benefit of all Michiganians.
- Every voter of color can get to their polling place and cast a ballot without waiting in a long line.
- Voters have poll workers who are qualified, effective, and representative of the communities they serve.
