According to a report from The Daily Signal, Michigan voters have passed an amendment to their state’s constitution.

Known as Proposal 2, the amendment passed with over 58 percent of the votes.

Michael Davis, executive director of Promote the Vote, said Tuesday night in a prepared statement, “I’d like to thank the millions of Michigan voters who said “Yes” to Proposal 2, which protects the fundamental right to vote while enhancing security and expanding the accessibility of Michigan’s future elections.” “Michigan voters clearly support ensuring every voice is heard, and every vote is counted in every election no matter what political party or candidate we support, where we live or what we look this.”

Opponents of Proposal 2 warn it makes Michigan elections less secure and open to voter fraud.

The Daily Signal received an email from Hans von Spakovsky, manager of the Election Law Reform Initiative, with the following statement, “In voting to approve Michigan Proposal 2, the voters of Michigan were conned by the deceptive language of its proponents into gutting voting ID requirements and implementing other reckless changes that will imperil the security and integrity of fair and honest elections in the state.”


Secure Mi Vote, a coalition that opposed Proposal 2, said in a statement that advocates of the amendment “will try to say signing an affidavit is the same thing (as ID), but it is not. Someone will be able to walk into their voting precinct, sign their name, and receive a regular ballot without ever showing an ID.” And that amendment “will open up more possibilities to not trust our elections.”

Michigan Republican state Rep. Steven Johnson told The Daily Signal that Proposal 2 “eliminates any effort that we could do to require a voter ID.” Michigan Democrat state Rep. Yousef Rabhi also told The Daily Signal that he thinks Proposal 2 is “a great proposal.”

As it stands, Proposal 2 allows voters to show some form of identification or sign an affidavit in place of any identification card.
