MI GUV(R) Rick Snyder on Wed vetoed several measures in a series of new legislation that included amendments to the state's election laws. Three of the vetoed bills would have required voters to produce photo identification for absentee voting, to confirm their citizenship before voting, and one which would have required voter registration groups to undergo training. Snyder cited concern that the vetoed measures would create confusion among absentee voters & that the vetoed measures might interfere w/ongoing voter registration efforts. At the same time, Snyder signed a nbr of other measures designed "to increase election transparency, prevent election fraud, and provide consistency across all voting locations," incl'g measures to "ensure proper handling of election materials by estab'g election clerk ed prgrms as well as a post-election review process" and to "require any pol party attempting to qualify as a new recognized party in MI to report on their spending." Snyder is the 1st Repub Guv to veto one of the spate of voter-ID laws to pass thru state legislatures in the past two years.
