CONYERS Applauds Supreme Court Decision To Uphold Straight Party Ticket Voting In Michigan

Detroit, MI – Congressman John Conyers, Jr. (MI-13) released the following statement after the U.S. Supreme Court rejected a request by Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette to reinstate the ban on straight party ticket voting in Michigan:

Dean of the U.S. House
of Representatives
John Conyers, Jr.
“The right to vote is one that many have fought and died for here in America. Unfortunately, we have seen far too many Republican-controlled state legislatures attack this right over the last several years.

“The mean-spirited law to ban straight party ticket voting in Michigan would have infringed upon voters’ access to the ballot box. I applaud the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to uphold our straight party ticket voting system. I will continue to fight for the rights of voters in Michigan and across this Nation.”
