A ballot campaign will begin collecting signatures to add a voting rights amendment to the state constitution.
The effort is backed by the ACLU, the League of Women Voters, and the Detroit branch of the NAACP.
The ACLU’s Kary Moss says the proposal would allow early voting and make it easier for people to vote absentee.
“If somebody wants to vote absentee, they have to be over 60 years old, they have to have an excuse," Moss said. "This proposal would allow for no-excuse absentee voting.”
