State Rep. Ann Bollin, chair of the House Elections and Ethics Committee, speaks in support of a bipartisan agreement to strengthen the integrity of Michigan elections.
State Rep. Ann Bollin, former Brighton Township clerk and past chair of the House Elections and Ethics Committee, today released the following statement in response to a press conference held by the Secretary of State and Democrats in the Legislature:
“I’ve been working hard for years to make our elections more secure and ensure that every eligible voter can vote freely, secretly, independently, and securely. It’s refreshing to hear that the Democrats may be on the same page. I’m willing to work across the aisle on legislation to implement election security measures, protect clerks, and fund our elections. That’s how I operated last term as chair of the Elections and Ethics Committee, and we passed several reforms with broad, bipartisan support. I look forward to continuing these discussions.”
