LANSING, Mich. – The Michigan House passed legislation that would enhance the security of Michigan elections by requiring photo identification to vote, and making it easier for every citizen to obtain a photo ID.
A bipartisan majority supports requiring a photo ID to be presented before casting a ballot.
“We’re proud of the State House for passing these common-sense elections bills and sending them to Governor Whitmer’s desk. A photo ID is essential for everyday tasks and secure elections,” said executive director Tori Sachs. “Providing a photo ID at no cost to voters is the right thing to do for the people of Michigan. It’s time for Governor Whitmer to listen to the people and sign this legislation making it easier to vote, and harder to cheat.”
