LANSING, May 5, 2022 ~ Governor Gretchen Whitmer vetoed legislation on Friday that would place a warning on voter registration applications stating that it is a felony to vote multiple times in the same election.

This bill is one of multiple GOP-helmed bills that Whitmer has vetoed since the 2020 presidential election, as Republicans push for stricter voting practices following the controversial election.

She’s pandering to her base. I will remind you that she’s also already vetoed the notion of having to show a legitimate, state-issued ID to vote,” said Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey to 760 WJR‘s Tom Jordan and Kevin Dietz. “However, at the most recent Democratic state convention, those folks who attended that…they could not vote, they could not attend, unless they showed a state-authorized ID.”

The lack of consistency, the inconsistency is really evident here, and it shows itself in unfortunately, a very partisan way.
