Michigan: “Benson, Detroit clerk press for early processing of absentee ballots”

Detroit News:

Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson is advocating for legislative changes that will allow local clerks to process an anticipated uptick in absentee voter ballots ahead of the first statewide election since new laws went into effect, expanding options to vote.

Benson told Detroit’s City Council in a Tuesday appearance that she expects more individuals will turn out to vote due to same-day registration and that absentee voting in Detroit alone will at least be doubled. The voting changes, she added, increase the “time, stress, and pressure” for local clerks to “deliver results.”
