Michigan: Petition language approved against Secretary of State, rejected against Attorney General

Petition language was approved for a recall effort against Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson (D), though a petition against Attorney General Dana Nessel (D) was rejected due to factualness and clarity reasons. Petitioners need more than 1 million signatures to get on the ballot. 

The petition against Benson is over mailing postcards to voters encouraging them to apply for vote from home ballots in November.

The Nessel recall was over complaints over enforcement of COVID-19 pandemic restrictions at long-term care facilities. 

There are also recall efforts against Governor Gretchen Whitmer and Lieutenant Governor Garlin Gilchrist II as well as multiple attempts against Nessel.
