Congressman Dan Kildee (MI-05) issued the following statement in response to U.S. District Court Judge Gershwin A. Drain blocking Michigan law, PA 268, which would ban straight-ticket voting:

 

“I support today’s decision by a federal judge to stop Michigan’s ban on straight-ticket voting from taking effect in November. It’s a shame that Michigan’s Republican-led Legislature enacted these burdensome restrictions that were found to adversely affect African Americans’ ability to vote. Every person, regardless of their race, gender or creed should have equal access to voting, and I call on the state of Michigan to uphold this decision and protect the rights of Michigan voters.”
