Ingham Co. Clerk Barb Byrum to Discuss Election Law Changes

The passage of the Promote the Vote ballot proposal in 2022 will bring some changes to election laws. Michigan lawmakers are continuing to work on implementing that ballot proposal. To help us understand what may be in the offing, Ingham County Clerk Barb Byrum will speak to Livingston County Democrats at our monthly meeting.

The meeting will be at 7 p.m. on Thursday, June 22, at Re/MAX Platinum Auditorium, 6870 Grand River, between Brighton and Howell. Attendees should park in the back, use the rear entrance, and take the stairs or elevator down to the auditorium. The meeting is open to all Democrats in the county. The party’s regular business meeting will follow.
