Red Tape: » Absentee Ballots Editorial

Red Tape:
"OK, if Michigan can accomplish anything in the immediate aftermath of this election, here’s one suggestion:

Have the Michigan Republican Party take a clear position on absentee ballot rules.

Republicans should endorse a liberalization of those rules, to what is called “no-reason” absentee balloting.

That’s not the current GOP position. At least, we don’t think it is.

You see, legislation has swirled around for years to alter Michigan’s absentee ballot rules, which limit such ballots to senior citizens and folks with specific reasons they can’t make the polls on Election Day.

“No-reason” absentee ballots are just that - if you want an absentee ballot, for any reason, you get to use one."
