Priorities USA Statement on the Michigan District Court’s Decision Granting a Preliminary Injunction Regarding Michigan Voter Transportation Law

September 17, 2020

Today, Priorities USA Chairman Guy Cecil issued the following statement in response to the Eastern District Court of Michigan’s Decision overturning a state ban on providing transportation to the polls for voters. The Michigan law made it a misdemeanor to “hire a motor vehicle or other conveyance or cause the same to be done, for conveying voters, other than voters physically unable to walk, to an election.”

“This decision by the Michigan District Court is a victory for all Michigan voters and another defeat for the baseless laws that make exercising the right to vote more difficult,” said Guy Cecil, Chairman of Priorities USA. “We are encouraged that the District Court in Michigan recognized the absurdity of the Voter Transportation Law — giving voters who do not have easy access to personal transportation more opportunities to get to the polls and have their voices heard on election day. While Donald Trump and his allies make every effort to prevent Americans from voting this fall, we are fighting back and we are winning.”
