Statement from Secretary Benson on Michigan Supreme Court Ruling

Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson made the following statement regarding today's Michigan Supreme Court ruling on poll challenger guidance:

"We've long been confident in the legality of the Michigan Bureau of Elections' guidelines surrounding election challengers and their rightful balance providing transparency while protecting voters and poll workers from disruptions and intimidation.

"In a moment when we often see lawsuits filed not to enforce the law but instead to cause confusion and further partisan strategies, I am grateful to the Michigan Supreme Court for providing clarity to all voters and election officials that the challenger guidelines and protocols used in previous elections will remain in effect for next week's general election."
