Statement from Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson on the state Senates action

"Michigan's voter ID and election security procedures are second to none, and fraud is not only infinitesimal, on the rare occasion it occurs it is also intercepted and prosecuted. Yet countless voters have been convinced the opposite is true by lying legislators seeking to maintain power by any means necessary, even as they tear apart our communities, state and nation.

"I cannot overstate how dangerous it is for our country that legislators continue to lie to voters in order to get them to support restrictions on their own constitutional voting rights."
