AG Nessel has repeatedly fought to protect the right to participate in free and fair elections, both at home and on the national level. In January of 2021, when Donald Trump was pushing the false narrative that the 2020 election had been ‘stolen’, AG Nessel joined a sign-on letter with all 50 attorneys general to condemn the January 6th Capitol attack, filed a response with the Supreme Court of the United States on the last lawsuit seeking to overturn the 2020 election, and repeatedly spoke out against anti-democratic efforts.
Michigan voters have the right to vote, and to have that vote count. AG Nessel’s responses to the anti-democratic efforts to overturn the 2020 election not only demonstrate her commitment to upholding our nation’s free and fair elections, but also her commitment to protecting the rights of Michigan voters.
