Michigan local leaders expect mixed impacts from expanded voter registration and absentee voting reforms

Tuesday, July 28, 2020

Abstract

This report presents the experiences and opinions of Michigan’s local government clerks and other city and township leaders regarding three statewide voting and election reforms: 1) voter registration up to 15 days before an election via mail, online, and at a Secretary of State’s office; 2) in-person, same-day voter registration up to and including Election Day at a local clerk’s office, and; 3) no-excuse absentee voting. These findings are based on statewide surveys of local government leaders in the Spring 2020 wave of the Michigan Public Policy Survey (MPPS), conducted between March 30 and June 1, 2020.
