Secretary Benson Makes Government and Voting Work for Everyone

Nov 30, 2021

End Citizens United // Let America Vote President Tiffany Muller released the following statement regarding proposals from Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson to protect the freedom to vote and access to the ballot:

“Time and again, Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson has taken steps to protect the freedom to vote for Michiganders, particularly senior citizens, who benefit from Michigan’s new accessible absentee voting rules. Her absentee voting protocols standardize practices for signature verification and allow voters to request an absentee ballot online, ensuring all Michigan voters have the ability to vote in their elections.

“While self-serving politicians across the country are pushing to put up barriers to voting, Secretary Benson is codifying the best practices that have allowed for more Michigan voters to safely and securely access the ballot box. Her leadership in ensuring every Michigander can vote in safe and secure elections is exactly why we need to keep Secretary Benson in office. She is making government work for everyone, so all voters can make their voices heard on the issues that matter most to them, like reducing healthcare costs and building back from the pandemic.”
