The Republicans don’t want you to vote, because they’re afraid you won’t vote for them!

The Republicans have made it clear that they don’t want to hear from every Michigander, only those who support their radical agenda. Their efforts to stop voters are focused on communities likeGrand Rapids with active and vocal Black populations.

They know their policies do not have your best interests at heart, and they’re afraid of your power. If they let you vote, they know you’ll take away their power.

Last year, the Republicans in Michigan introduced a package of 39 bills aimed at suppressing the vote. The Michigan Dems oppose these bills that included measures to:

  • Make absentee voting more difficult.
  • Add confusing language to voter registration applications to confuse and discourage potential voters from participating in the voting process.
  • Undermine local county clerks who run elections.
  • Spread disinformation about our election process.

The Michigan Dems believe we should lift every voice. Your voice and your vote deserve to be counted, and we will not stop until we’ve ensured that everyone in Grand Rapids, no matter their race, has the right to vote without any restrictions!
