Statement from Jake Rollow, spokesman for the Michigan Department of State, on President Trump's inaccurate tweet

Applications are mailed nearly every election cycle by both major parties and countless advocacy and nonpartisan organizations. Just like them, we have full authority to mail applications to ensure voters know they have the right to vote safely by mail."
