#NoMIProp3 #MITCOT #MIElections


Initiative Petition Amendment to the Constitution (Scroll down )

Official Ballot Wording approved by Board of State Canvassers Proposal 18-3

Screen Shot 2017-08-27 at 3.06.16 PMThis is proposed constitutional amendment would allow a United States citizen who is qualified to vote in Michigan to:

•Become automatically registered to vote when applying for, updating or renewing a driver’s license or state-issued personal identification card, unless the person declines,
•Simultaneously register to vote with proof of residency and obtain a ballot during the 2-week period prior to an election, up to and including Election Day.
•Obtain an absent voter ballot without providing a reason.
•Cast a straight-ticket vote for all candidates of a particular political party when voting in a partisan general election.

Constution1. This proposal will CHANGE Michigan’s Constitution. Initiative would amend Section 4 of Article II of the state constitution.

2.The language you see on the ballot is NOT the law that will be passed. The language on the ballot has been reduced to hundred words.
The INITIATIVE PETITION AMENDMENT TO THE CONSTITUTION is the law that if the ballot proposal is passed

3. The path to get an proposal on the ballot is two fold, money and signatures. Most signature gathers are paid to collect signatures. Their pay is determined by how many signatures they collect. It is highly likely that inaccurate and certainly incomplete information was given by signature gathers in an effort to gather as many signatures as possible

4. The group behind getting the proposal on the ballot is NOT “non-partisan. Its a group on in state and out of state Democrats, Liberal PACS and organizations.

Why You Should Vote NO:

The proposal supports secret ballots, post-election audits and helping military personnel cast ballots. (Sec 4. (A) (B) Sounds good but guess what? Those are already part of our law.

Voter Fraud and the manipulation of the system by special interest groups

For example lets look to our mid-west neighbor Wisconsin a state that has same day registration

The Problem with Same Day Voter Registration

“MADISON, Wis. – Almost a thousand cases of potential election day registration fraud were referred to district attorneys across Wisconsin following the 2016 general election, and questions remain over thousands more voters who can’t be located or verified, according to data from the state Elections Commission.Screen Shot 2018-09-28 at 2.41.47 PM

Voter registration groups like Project Vote/Voting for America, SEIU, and ACORN have caused considerable chaos in previous election cycles. Last week an ACORN employee pleaded guilty to felony vote fraud.

Wisconsin is a same day voter registration state and though the media will try to downplay the story, and others like it, fraudulent action by groups like ACORN and Project Vote can directly affect the outcome of an election, which is deemed voter fraud.”

Almost 4,000 Cases of Likely Voter Fraud Recorded By Wisconsin Officials After 2016 Election

During the early voting period of the 2012 election in North Carolina, 2,144 same-day ballots were cast by voters whose addresses couldn’t be verified after the election.

In North Carolina, another same day registration state,
19 Illegals were caught voting illegally, falsely claiming American citizenship to get on the voter rolls

Widespread Voter Fraud Documented in New Minnesota Supreme Court Case
“A new voter fraud case before the Minnesota Supreme Court claims 1,366 ineligible felons have cast at least 1,670 fraudulent votes in recent statewide elections, possibly tipping the outcome of close contests, including the 2008 U.S. Senate race.

The case holds repercussions for the 2016 election with the plaintiffs seeking a court order to prevent state and local election officials from distributing ballots to ineligible voters by implementing new safeguards.

The lawsuit marks the culmination of a years-long effort to challenge suspected voter fraud tied to Minnesota’s same day voting registration law. More than half a million Minnesotans register to vote on Election Day in general election years like 2016.”


Does Same Day Registration Increase the Voting Population as Promote the Vote Claims?

election intergrityWhy Are Millions of Citizens Not Registered to Vote? A survey of the civilly unengaged finds they lack interest, but outreach opportunities exist

“The unregistered differ in many ways from those who vote frequently: They are less interested in politics, less engaged in civic activities, and more cynical about their ability to understand and influence government, but they are not appreciably different on these measures from individuals who are registered but rarely vote….These findings suggest that opportunities exist to engage segments of the unregistered population, including through consistent outreach at motor vehicle agencies as required under the NVRA and public education campaigns designed to highlight the significance of individual voter participation to election outcomes and the connection between local policies and issues these citizens care about, such as those for which they volunteer in their communities.”

Making Voting Easier Doesn’t Increase Turnout

“Put simply, no matter how low the direct costs to casting a ballot are set, the only way to both increase turnout and eliminate socioeconomic biases in the voting population is to increase the engagement of the broader public with the political world.”

America keeps voting earlier — and it keeps not affecting turnout that much

“While early in-person voting and no-excuse absentee voting in Ohio has reduced waiting times on Election Day, it has had no measurable impact on increasing voter turnout,” he wrote….Early voting doesn’t appear to help turnout by itself, but it can be helpful to campaigns. If the campaigns take advantage.”


Voters are not unregistered because there is lack of opportunity or the system is racist or prejudiced against the poor as Promote the Vote would claim, its because of the lack of interest. Same Day Voting does not address the lack of voting interest, education and engagement does.

One method to “increase the engagement of the broader public with the political world.” and issues was to eliminate straight ticket voting which was signed into Michigan law in 2016. The proposal seeks to circumvent that method and the legislature (Sec. 4 (C) by including the return to straight ticket voting “Cast a straight-ticket vote for all candidates of a particular political party when voting in a partisan general election.”

This proposal is NOT some non-partisan effort for the good for the people. Its goal is not to “increase the engagement of the broader public with the political world.”
It is a political agenda trying to guarantee that Michigan will NEVER turn Red again by any means necessary. It does not serve the people of Michigan but only serves a political purpose.
