Michigan Ballot Proposal Would Allow Convicts in Prison to Vote

(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) “Proposal 2,” a Michigan measure that will be voted on in the midterm elections, would amend the state constitution to allow felons to vote from behind bars.

The proposal is being pushed by an organization called “Promote the Vote,” and would also make mandatory voter ID illegal, allow for private interests to buy election infrastructure, weaken signature verification standards and permit ballot harvesting, Big League Politics reported.

“Everyone I talk to is stunned to find out the truth that Proposal 2 could make it easier for criminals to vote,” Casey Armitage, chairwoman of the 9th Congressional District Republican Committee, said.

“We do not want to see that happen in our state. Michiganders believe in following the law, not rewriting it so that criminals can determine who represents us at the state, local and federal levels.”

Michigan Supreme Court Justice Brian Zahra stated that Proposal 2’s language seems to be  specifically written to work around of the legislature and introduce convoluted and contradictory language into the state constitution.

“Article 2, Section 1 expressly acknowledges that who is qualified to be an elector in Michigan can be limited by other provisions of the Constitution, and Article 2, Section 2 expressly grants the Legislature permissive authority to enact statutes imposing such limitations as to mentally incompetent or incarcerated individuals,” Zahra said.

Some leftist have deigned to declare Proposal 3 as “protection from Trumpian conspiracies,” even as the proposal would leave massive, gaping holes in Michigan’s election processes.

If passed the bill would prevent election overturns by allowing only election officials, such as the secretary of state, to be legally allowed to audit post-election results. Private groups would no longer have the ability to hold government officials accountable.

Early voting would be encouraged, and always-accessible dropboxes would be mandated in each township.

Michigan Democrats also have some of the most radical abortion legislation on the ballot for November in the form of Proposal 3, which would allow for abortion on demand and “gender affirming” hormone treatments without parental consent, both funded by state taxpayers.
