Making the Voting Booth SAFE

Dave Murray 

LANSING – Americans serving overseas in the military would be able to more easily cast absentee ballots for local and state elections under a bill introduced this week by state Rep. Rick Outman, R-Six Lakes.
HB 5297 is backed by Secretary of State Ruth Johnson and is headed for committee debate possibly as soon as next week, a state House Republican spokesman said.

Seems ironic that we make it easier for the soldier to vote, but harder for other citizens to register and vote. Ok, maybe not ironic since we’re talking about republicans.
