LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - The Associated Press has projected that Proposal 2 has passed on the ballot in the 2022 Michigan Midterms

Proposal 2 would add several voting and election policies to the Michigan Constitution. It would also add language regarding additional voting-related rights.

Proposal 2 would add the following policies to the constitution:

  • Creating a nine-day early voting period
  • Allowing for a signed affidavit or photo identification to vote
  • Requiring that military and overseas ballots postmarked by election day are counted
  • Providing voters with a right to request an absentee ballot
  • Requiring the state to fund prepaid stamps and a tracking system for absentee ballots
  • Requiring the state to fund a number of absentee ballots drop boxes
  • Providing that local governments can accept charitable and in-kind donations to assist with running elections as long as donations are disclosed and aren’t from foreign entities
  • Providing that election officials are responsible for election audits, requiring election audits to be conducted in public, and requiring election results to be certified based on votes cast.
