Comparing Ballot Proposal Voter Guides

Earlier this month the Michigan League of Responsible Voters announced a new effort to educate voters about the proposals that will appear on the November ballot.

The voter guide, which can be seen here, includes no-nonsense information about the proposals, and includes a balanced list of groups that are supporting and opposing Proposals 1-5. Take a look:

For the sake of comparison, let’s take a look at the voter guide that is being mailed by the Tea Party group Americans for Prosperity, which is funded by the billionaire Koch brothers (click to enlarge).

As you can see, AFP’s voter guide is completely one-sided, and repeats many of the debunked attacks on Proposals 2, 3 and 4 that have been discredited by multiple news reports.

They must think Michigan voters are pretty dumb, but we know better.

Take the time to be responsible, and get informed. Be sure to visit LeagueOfResponsibleVoters.org, and share the link with your friends and family.
