Electoral reform in Michigan refers to efforts, proposals and plans to change the election and voting laws of Michigan. In 2004, Ferndale residents overwhelmingly passed Proposal B, implementing instant-runoff voting.[1] Ballot access laws in Michigan are rather restrictive, as they currently requires a political party to submit 38,024 signatures, including 100 signatures from half of all Michigan Congressional districts. The Michigan Third Parties Coalition is seeking to relax those requirements.[2] So far, no bills have been introduced in the Michigan Legislature to join the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact.
