Open more polling places in Detroit so more people can vote

To be delivered to Janice Winfrey, Detroit City Clerk

Petition Statement

Make voting easier and more convenient: Open more polling places in Detroit.
There are currently 1,433 signatures. NEW goal - We need 2,000 signatures!

Petition Background

My family doesn't own a car. When I, along with my wife and three-year-old twins, went to vote in November 2016, we had to travel a mile and a half and wait more than an hour and a half to vote. That's too far and too long.

Opening more polling places will shorten lines, make voting more convenient for more voters, and reduce stress on poll workers. And research shows that moving polling places closer to where voters live increases the likelihood they will vote (especially if they don't have a car).

The Detroit City Clerk is the elected official ultimately responsible for managing the voting and elections process. That means that the City Clerk must do everything it their power to make voting as easy and accessible as possible.
