The leaders of three dozen major Michigan-based companies, including General Motors and Ford, have announced their objection to Republican-sponsored election bills that would make it harder to vote in Michigan and other states.

 

The businesses issued a joint statement Tuesday saying they are united for principles such as avoiding moves that reduce voting - particularly among historically disenfranchised communities. They stopped short of weighing in on specific legislation.

 

The Republican-led Michigan Senate will soon begin hearings on bills to require a photo ID to vote and restrict the hours in which people could drop their ballot in curbside boxes.
