Whitmer Signs Absentee Voter Bill

Governor Whitmer has taken action that will give some clerks in Michigan the ability to start processing absentee ballots a few hours before Election Day.

“Today I’m signing a bill to help ensure every vote is counted on Election Day,” said Whitmer. “Senate Bill 757 will amend the Michigan election law to allow clerks in cities and townships with a population of at least 25,000 to begin processing absentee ballots prior to Election Day.”

The law also says clerks will notify voters of any reason their vote won’t be counted within 48 hours. Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson says 2.7 million people have requested absentee ballots so far and she predicts more than three million absentee votes may be case in this year’s election.
