Fellow Justice Caucus Members:
On behalf of our Officers and Directors, I write to thank you for your work to restore justice and elect Bridget McCormack to the Michigan Supreme Court this last Tuesday.
Fellow Justice Members,
THANK YOU to the many volunteers who came out today to remind absentee voters in Detroit about JOHNSON, KELLEY AND McCORMACK!
Justice for Michigan was asked recently to coordinate poll greeters to be at the Detroit Elections absentee ballot dropoff/pickup locations tomorrow, Monday, November 5.
We have not yet filled all these shifts.
Fellow Justice Caucus Members,
You've heard this one before: "When you want something done, ask a busy person." Well, we have some more business to do in this Supreme Court election contest.
In the closing days of the 1992 campaign, Bill Clinton's friend, the legendary basketball coach Eddie Sutton, sent him a message:
It’s a close race, and too many voters don’t know the names Kelley, Johnson, and McCormack.
Been too busy to help? It’s not too late. Now is the time.
Yesterday's Detroit Free Press reported these poll results in the Michigan Supreme Court races:
For the two 8-year term seats:
Oakland County Circuit Judge Colleen O'Brien [GOP] 11%
Election Day is less than two weeks away, and we are busy every day reaching voters who do not know the names Connie Kelley, Shelia Johnson, and Bridget McCormack. We need to reach more people, and you can help make it happen. Sign up here.
In 2008, 744 people voted in a particular Wayne County precinct. Over 91% of them voted for Barack Obama. But only 56% of the Obama supporters voted for the Supreme Court candidate nominated by the Democratic Party.
Think that’s unusual? What about this Washtenaw County precinct? About 80% in that precinct voted for Barack Obama. But only 49% of the Obama supporters voted for the Supreme Court candidate nominated by the Democratic Party.
EVERY DAY ABSENTEE VOTERS ARE TURNING IN THEIR BALLOTS, and many of them don’t know that a straight ticket vote doesn’t include a vote for any judicial candidates. The Michigan Supreme Court interprets our laws and decides major issues for Michigan citizens: consumer protection, worker rights, the environment, and much, much more!
