"Mich. election officials reject claims of illegally barring voters"

The Detroit News has this report on the Advancement Project's claims that the State of Michigan has violated state and federal election laws by "canceling voter registrations of people who apply for and receive a driver's license from another state, and requiring a second piece of picture ID if the poll worker cannot recognize the voter from a single piece of identification."

Update: The Detroit Free Press reports here on the Advancement Project's complaint that Michigan election officials cancelled their scheduled meeting at the last minute, after learning that litigation was contemplated.
