Description Proposal 3 would add several voting policies to the Michigan Constitution. Some of these voting policies exist in state statute, but not the state constitution, while most others would be altered policies or new policies. The new policies that would be added to the state constitution include straight-ticket voting; automatic voter registration; same-day voter registration; and no-excuse absentee voting during the 40 days before an election. Proposal 3 would allow eligible persons to register to vote by mail until 15 days before an election, whereas current law allows them to register to vote by mail until 30 days before an election. The ballot initiative would also constitutionalize existing law providing that military members and overseas voters receive an absentee ballot at least 45 days before the election. Proposal 3 would add language to the constitution to provide for the use of secret ballots and election results auditing.
