The above link takes you to a very wrongheaded editorial about no-excuse absentee voting. Apparently an unsigned editorial.
Michigan voters, however, might want to read up on the facts about absentee voting problems, here. The bill you should be aware of is S.B. 12.
Earlier this month, state Sens. Liz Brater (D-Ann Arbor) and Hilda Z. Jacobs (D-Huntington Woods) announced a “No Excuses Voting Initiative” that supports the passage of Senate Bill 12, which would allow voters to vote by absentee ballot for any reason.
