Promote the Vote says they're confident in signatures

The coalition behind a ballot question aimed at growing voter access in Michigan says it's confident it'll appear on the November ballot.

The group, "Promote the Vote," isn't yet revealing how many signatures it has collected ahead of Monday's deadline to turn them in.

But Executive Director Micheal Davis Junior says the group has "more than enough" to shield the proposed constitutional amendment from scrutiny. "Promote the Vote '22 put in strong—put in place very strong safeguards and a thorough signature verification process to ensure that we have a high validity and quality of our signatures, including pre-screening and thoroughly examining for duplicate signatures," he says.

If Promote the Vote succeeds in making it into the state constitution, it would guarantee the right to vote without an ID through a signed statement and provide 9 days of early in-person voting.
