Michigan House passes GOP-led bills to make voter ID laws stricter

A bill that would impose strict ID requirements on Michigan voters, as well as restrict election funding and ban election officials from mailing absentee ballot applications unless a voter specifically requests one, will soon land on Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s desk.GOP lawmakers in the House approved the bill Thursday on a 56-51 party-line vote. They also voted on a bill that would lay out the steps voters must follow to ensure their ballot counts if they do not comply with the new ID requirements, as well as a third bill that would eliminate the fee to obtain a state ID. Both bills also passed without the support of any Democratic lawmakers. Clara Hendrickson, The Detroit Free Press.
