I am happy to report that on Wednesday, a federal appellate court panel rejected the state law that would have ended straight-ticket voting in November’s General Election. The new law would have created another form of voter suppression from Republicans, by creating confusion for voters, and longer lines at the polls. The rejection of this law is a strong victory for Democrats! Now let’s work hard to get more good Dems in office in November!

We look forward to seeing you Saturday, August 27th at the Lansing Center for our Local Convention meeting at the State Convention starting at 3:00 p.m.  We also look forward to working with and supporting selected candidates for this important upcoming election. Go Dems!
