Project Vote Applauds Michigan Governor Snyder’s Veto of Voter Suppression Package


 
July 3, 2012
 
Today, Governor Rick Snyder of Michigan vetoed a package of voter suppression laws—including HB 5061, SB 754 and SB 803—passed by the state legislature. Project Vote Executive Director Michael Slater issued the following statement in response:
 
“Governor Snyder is to be congratulated for doing right by Michigan voters and taking an important stand against the current onslaught of voter suppression laws. These laws would have expanded unnecessary voter ID requirements and imposed unfair requirements and restrictions on voter registration drives, making it harder for eligible Michigan citizens to participate in our democracy.
