I want to congratulate all Michiganders for the successful election we participated in on November 3, 2020. We had 5.5 million people vote in this election – the most ever in our state’s history. In 2018, we passed Proposal 3 to make it easier to vote because we the voters should choose our politicians, not politicians choosing their voters. The Michigan Senate introduced Senate Bills 272-311 to make it harder to exercise our fundamental right to vote. We all know that it is not always easy for our grandparents and even parents to get to the polling place on Election Day. Making it easy and convenient to vote from home through the mail by absentee ballot is a great and safe way to vote and we should not support any bills that will make that process harder. I think that even you may have taken advantage of this method of voting because it really makes it a lot easier to mail in your ballot instead trying to vote after working all day. I hope you join me and other Voters Not Politicians volunteers and contact your state legislators to make sure they do not support these bills that will make it harder for all of us to vote absentee.

Joan Fifelski, Kent City
