Date: 
Wed, Apr 11, 2018 - 5:30pm to 7:00pm

Did you know that Michiganders lack the same access to the ballot enjoyed by residents of nearly every other state in the country? Early and multi-day voting, automatic voter registration, and no excuse absentee voting are just some of the ways other states have improved their voting systems. If you want to help move Michigan forward on this critical issue, come enjoy a local brew and great conversation with other Michiganders interested in voting rights in our state.
