Two organizations that represent hundreds of Michigan clerks called on state lawmakers Monday “to set aside their agendas” and make bipartisan improvements to voting policies ahead of the November statewide election.
Mary Clark, president of the Michigan Association of Municipal Clerks, and Marc Kleiman, president of the Michigan Association of County Clerks, made the request in a two-page letter addressed to “state and legislative leaders.”
Clark, who’s the Delta Township clerk, said her organization’s members are feeling frustrated about the lack of action 15 months after the November 2020 election threw the battleground state’s policies into the national spotlight.
“The things that we need are not happening,” Clark said in an interview.
Democrats and Republicans in Lansing have struggled to find common ground on how to change the state’s election laws. Former President Donald Trump’s supporters have leveled unproven claims that widespread fraud cost him the 2020 vote in Michigan.
