LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Legislation meant to make it easier and faster for military personnel from Michigan to vote in elections is advancing in the state Legislature.
The state Senate on Tuesday unanimously passed legislation that would permit the state to send electronic absentee voter ballots to Michigan residents serving overseas. Military personnel could print out the ballots and mail them to election clerks in Michigan.
Supporters say the plan would speed up the process of voting and increase participation in elections for military personnel from Michigan stationed overseas.
The legislation advances to the state House.
