Secretary Benson issues statement on dismissal of PILF lawsuit

Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson made the following statement regarding the dismissal today by the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Michigan of a lawsuit by the Public Interest Legal Foundation:
"In the last several years, our state’s Bureau of Elections along with our clerks have done more work than ever before to increase the accuracy of our voter registration records and ensure the security and accuracy of our elections.
I’m gratified to see the courts affirm this work by dismissing this thinly veiled attempt to undermine voters’ faith in their voice, their vote, and our democracy.
This is 2024. Voters should expect more attempts to fool them about our elections to follow this failed effort. And they should know we will continue to respond to those attacks with truth, facts, and data to give all citizens confidence that every valid vote, and only valid votes, will be counted in every election."
