• This year Michigan voters will elect a governor and we recommend re-electing Governor Gretchen Whitmer. In her four years as Michigan’s governor, Gov. Whitmer has repeatedly proven herself as a fierce advocate for people across the state.

    Despite continued efforts by the Republican-controlled legislature to derail her efforts, Gov. Whitmer has done her part to move the state forward, working with the GOP when it was possible and wielding her veto pen to stop bad bills when it was necessary.

    With Roe v. Wade overturned, Gov. Whitmer has taken swift, decisive action to prevent enforcement of the state’s pre-Roe abortion ban. She has fought for abortion access throughout her career and consistently opposed efforts to restrict reproductive freedom. Right now, she’s one of the only things standing in the way of efforts by Michigan Republicans to further attack access to reproductive health care.

    Under Gov. Whitmer’s leadership, the state has taken significant strides forward in public education. She took the lead on a historic budget that made the largest K-12 investment in state history, made the funding system more equal, and expanded multiple programs designed to support students and educators. She’s also worked to expand community college and job training programs to working folks across the state.

    Of course, with Republicans in control of the legislature, Gov. Whitmer’s ability to pass progressive legislation has been limited—but she’s made use of her executive powers to stop bad bills passed by the GOP. The bills Gov. Whitmer has stopped include multiple anti-voter laws, a DeVos-backed school voucher scheme, and a tax plan that would benefit the wealthy at the expense of working people.

    Whitmer’s running mate is Lt. Gov. Garlin Gilchrist II. Lt. Gov. Gilchrist studied computer engineering and computer science at the University of Michigan before moving on to a career as a software engineer at Microsoft. Before becoming lieutenant governor, Gilchrist was a community organizer and worked in local government. As Lt. Gov., he has spearheaded campaigns for criminal justice reform, access to community college and job training programs, and efforts to improve Michigan’s cities.

    The Whitmer Gilchrist ticket is endorsed by eight of our partners: Planned Parenthood Advocates of Michigan, Michigan AFL-CIO, American Federation of Teachers Michigan, Sierra Club Michigan Chapter, Clean Water Action, Michigan League of Conservation Voters, Michigan Education Association, and Equality Michigan.

    Gov. Whitmer’s opponent is Tudor Dixon, a Trump-endorsed, DeVos funded MAGA Republican who believes abortion should be banned with no exceptions for rape, incest, or health of the mother. She has participated in spreading election disinformation and attacked efforts to teach honest accounts of U.S. history in schools and make classrooms more inclusive for LGBTQ+ kids. Tudor is endorsed by the anti-choice organization Right to Life Michigan. Dixon’s running mate is former state representative Shane Hernandez, who was named the most conservative member of the House in 2017 by MIRS News Service.

    The Gov. Whitmer L.G. Gilchrist ticket is the progressive choice in this race.

  • Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson knows how critical her office is to defending our democracy and ensuring voters can make their voices heard—she even wrote a book about it before she was elected.

    Now, she’s using her expertise to keep our elections secure, efficient, and accessible. Under her leadership, Michiganders turned out in record numbers in the 2020 election despite a pandemic and rampant disinformation, and audits and court cases have proven time and time again that this election was the most secure in our state’s history.

    Since then, Secretary Benson has worked to combat lies and conspiracy theories about Michigan’s election systems. Despite repeated attacks and threats from MAGA Republicans, she has refused to back down from the fight to preserve democracy in Michigan. She’s also pushed back against restrictive anti-voter laws and worked to ensure clerks have the resources they need to keep running efficient elections.

    She’s also reworked how the Secretary of State’s office handles common transactions like updating vehicle registration. By expanding online services and self-serve kiosks and updating systems and processes for making an appointment, she’s cut down on wait times and made running our errands more convenient than ever.

    Secretary Benson is endorsed by eight of our partners: Planned Parenthood Advocates of Michigan, Michigan AFL-CIO, American Federation of Teachers Michigan, Sierra Club Michigan Chapter, Clean Water Action, Michigan League of Conservation Voters, Michigan Education Association, and Equality Michigan.

    Secretary Benson’s opponent is Kristina Karamo, a Trump-endorsed, MAGA extremist and QAnon supporter who has repeatedly spread lies about Michigan elections, as well as dangerous antisemitic conspiracy theories and inflammatory rhetoric about the LGBTQ+ community. Karamo also opposes abortion and has said the practice of yoga, amongst other things, is satanic. Karamo is endorsed by the anti-choice organization Right to Life Michigan.

  • This year Michigan voters will elect an attorney general and we recommend re-electing Attorney General Dana Nessel.

    From the start, AG Nessel has been an advocate for the environment and public health. She’s successfully sued several of the big corporations responsible for polluting our water with toxic PFAS chemicals and ensured they’re held accountable for the messes they’ve made. She has gone toe-to-toe with fossil fuel giant Enbridge and fought to shut down the dangerous Line 5 oil pipeline to protect our Great Lakes.

    Her corporate accountability efforts go beyond polluters. In response to rampant wage theft, AG Nessel created a payroll fraud unit to ensure employees are not robbed of their paychecks. She’s also held big pharma companies accountable for their role in the opioid crisis.

    She’s also worked to prevent abuse and hold abusers accountable. From investigating sexual abuse in the Catholic Church and the Boy Scouts, to working proactively to prevent elder abuse, she’s been a consistent voice for our most vulnerable.

    When MAGA Republicans tried to intimidate voters and subvert the will of the people, AG Nessel took immediate action to combat disinformation and make sure these bad actors faced consequences for their actions.

    AG Nessel is endorsed by seven of our partners: Planned Parenthood Advocates of Michigan, Michigan AFL-CIO, American Federation of Teachers Michigan, Sierra Club Michigan Chapter, Clean Water Action, Michigan Education Association, and Equality Michigan.

    AG Nessel’s opponent Matthew DePerno is a Trump-endorsed MAGA extremist who worked to undermine the will of voters in the 2020 election and was fired from a law firm for a pattern of dishonesty and fraud. He wants to ban abortion in all cases, with no exceptions for rape, incest, or the life of the mother and has suggested he would go even further, potentially banning contraception as well. DePerno is endorsed by the anti-choice organization Right to Life Michigan.

  • Two seats on the Michigan Supreme Court are up for grabs this year, and we recommend incumbent Justice Richard Bernstein and newcomer Kyra Harris Bolden.

    Richard Bernstein is the first blind justice to sit on the state’s highest court and has worked during his time on the court to protect Michiganders’ rights, including the right to vote on reproductive freedom and voting rights initiatives, and preserve the integrity of the judicial system.

    During the COVID-19 pandemic, he sought to preserve emergency protections designed to keep communities safe. He also helped deliver a decision that made kids and educators safer by keeping guns out of Michigan classrooms.

    Justice Bernstein has ruled against shady interest groups in multiple cases, including a decision that upheld prevailing wage laws that ensure construction workers are paid fairly, a ruling that public money should not be funneled into private schools, and a decision to hold election saboteurs accountable.

    Kyra Harris Bolden would be the first Black woman to serve on the Michigan Supreme Court. Bolden is a passionate, experienced leader and legal professional who has worked throughout her career to promote justice and equality for all. She’s vowed to protect the rights of all Michiganders.

    In addition to her legal knowledge and expertise, Bolden brings years of experience serving in the state legislature, where she was an outspoken advocate for racial justice, criminal justice reform, and reproductive freedom.

    Current Supreme Court Justice Brian Zahara has a history of failing to stand up for LGBTQ rights and victims of abuse. He’s taken money from the DeVos family and sided with their efforts to give public taxpayer dollars to private schools. He also sided with an opinion that sought to keep voting rights and reproductive freedom initiatives off the November ballot, which would have silenced Michigan voters. When given the opportunity to vote to keep guns out of Michigan’s schools, Zahra failed to do so.

    Justice Bernstein and Bolden are endorsed by five of our partners including Planned Parenthood Advocates of Michigan, Michigan AFL-CIO, American Federation of Teachers Michigan, Michigan Education Association, and Equality Michigan.
