State Rep. Matt Hall, of Marshall, today issued the following statement after the withdrawal of an initiative to award all of Michigan’s electoral votes to the presidential candidate who wins the national popular vote. Activists had hoped to put the initiative on the 2022 ballot. Hall has led efforts to protect the voices of Michigan voters in the face of the proposal, calling for the current Electoral College system to continue:

“I have been a consistent voice against this proposal and will continue to be going forward. The voices of all Michigan voters should matter.”
