In addition to engaging election clerks, Voters Ed Fund is using a data-driven approach to make substantial contributions to understanding the work needed to implement Proposal 22-2. In early April, we published Implementing Proposal 22-2: Ensuring the Equitable Distribution of AV Drop Boxes. Our publicly shared report was disseminated to volunteers, stakeholders, coalition partners, and the Michigan Secretary of State to better understand the number of drop boxes that will need to be added across Michigan to provide the required number of AV Drop Boxes. Our report found that 709 additional AV Drop Boxes will need to be added this year across 630 election jurisdictions.
Voters Ed Fund is working with a robust coalition of more than a dozen nonpartisan organizations. We meet weekly to share updates, materials and timelines to make sure our collective work is as effective and efficient as possible. As the nonprofit that has been the first to launch this kind of program in the state, Voters Ed Fund is sharing information we are learning from volunteers and clerks.
