I am adding my two cents to the "voter suppression" argument. The Democrats seem to want to pound it into us that there is such a thing. I don't believe it. Let me give you some statistics on why. First of all, using 2016 numbers, there were 7,514,055 registered voters in Michigan. The voting age population was 7,737,250. The number of people who actually voted that year in the presidential election was 4,874,619, 63% turnout.
