LANSING, Mich. (AP) — The Michigan appeals court has again struck down changes to the state’s ballot drive law, including a limit on how many voter signatures can come from any one region.
Friday’s ruling is the latest in a legal fight that began after Republican lawmakers and then-Gov. Rick Snyder enacted the 2018 law. It made it harder to mount ballot initiatives.
Many parts have never taken effect because of an opinion from Democratic Attorney General Dana Nessel and court decisions.
The court negated a 15% cap on signatures from any one congressional district. It also nullified requirements that paid circulators file an affidavit and that petitions say whether circulators are paid or not.
