On the Ballot: Michigan Election Changes

Proposal 18 – 3 A proposal to authorize automatic and Election Day voter registration, no -reason absentee voting, and straight ticket voting; and add  current legal requirements for military and overseas voting and post-election audits to the Michigan Constitution

This proposed constitutional amendment would allow a United States citizen who is qualified to vote in Michigan to:

–  Become automatically registered to vote when applying for, updating or renewing a driver’s license or state -issued personal identification card, unless the person declines.

 –  Simultaneously register to vote with proof of residency and obtain a ballot during the 2 -week period prior to an election, up to and including Election Day.

–  Obtain an absent voter ballot without providing a reason.

–  Cast a straight -ticket vote for all candidates of a particular political party when voting in a partisan general election.

Should this proposal be adopted?


Election Day is Nov. 6, 2018.  Find more information on ballot proposals and candidates at Oakland County Clerk’s website, and Oakland County Times Election Page.
