<span style="font-size:22px;">Security protections prevent voting in another person's name</span>

In Michigan, absentee ballots are not counted until a voter has twice provided signatures matching the one on file with their local election clerk – first on their application and then on their absentee ballot envelope. Hundreds of ballots were rejected because they lacked a matching signature. Similarly, upon arriving at a polling place, voters are asked to provide photo ID or sign an affidavit confirming their identity and eligibility to vote.

Voting in another person’s name is illegal – regardless of if it is the other person’s maiden name or the person has died or moved. Charges were brought against people who attempted to apply for the ballot of someone else – and those applications were rejected.

Anyone with evidence of voter fraud should report it to law enforcement in writing so that it can be investigated and referred for prosecution.
