Republicans and Mitt Romney wanted to let the auto industry fail. Here’s yet another reason why elections matter.

+ Michigan residents have until Monday, July 8, to register in order to vote in the Aug. 6 election. 
The polls will be open on Election Day from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. To find out if there is an election in your community, visit www.michigan.gov/vote. This election will be a primary in some cities.
To register, applicants must be at least 18 years old by Election Day and be U.S. citizens. Applicants must also be residents of Michigan and of the city or township in which they wish to register.
Voters may register by mail or in person at their county, city or township clerk’s office or by visiting any Secretary of State office. When registering in person, voters must present identification or sign an affidavit stating they do not have identification with them. The mail-in form is available at www.michigan.gov/elections. First-time voters who register by mail must vote in person in their first election, unless they hand-deliver the application to their local clerk, are 60 years old or older, are disabled or are eligible to vote under the Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act.
To check their registration status, residents may visit the Michigan Voter Information Center at www.michigan.gov/vote. Residents can also find information on absentee voting, Michigan’s voter identification requirement, how to use voting equipment and how to contact their local clerk.
In addition, they will find a map to their local polling place and a sample ballot. A mobile version is also available at the same website.

President Comes Out Against New Legislation In Michigan

The Obama administration, in a statement Thursday afternoon, came out against proposed “right-to-work” legislation being pushed by Republicans in Michigan including Gov. Rick Snyder (R).

Michigan Republican Governor Rick Snyder is on a post-election power grab to strip the rights of workers. Just like Wisconsin, the Koch brothers have emerged from the shadows to support Snyder’s extreme lurch to the right.

Michigan voters tried to make clear that they didn’t want this, but they were shut out of the state Capitol building. What Republicans are doing in Michigan is more than anti-worker – it’s just plain wrong. This isn’t the way states should be run.

Add your name to send a message to Snyder and the Kochs that we won’t stand for this. We support workers in Michigan who are fighting to be heard.
