"Michigan is rightly known as a state that encourages all eligible voters to have their voices heard on Election Day and one that voters can have full confidence in the accuracy and integrity of the results," Johnson said. "I will work with anyone to find ways to make voting accessible for all eligible Americans as well as strengthen election integrity. I firmly believe in, and will defend, our state's right to administer our own elections and safeguard our voters and their private information."
Johnson has made election integrity and the accuracy of Michigan's Qualified Voter File a top priority since she took office in 2011. Her office also has performed 1,400 post-election audits, sends out a reminder to Michigan residents when they turn 18 years old and asks people who aren't registered to sign when they visit a Secretary of State office. Michigan has been named the top state for registering people to vote at motor-vehicle offices according to USA Today, and ranks consistently among the top states for election administration.
