    Representative Martin Griffin (D-64th District) introduced House Bill 4048 on January 22, 2007, regarding absentee voting. If passed, the bill would eliminate the requirement that a person must provide a specific reason for voting by absentee ballot. The bill was referred to the House Ethics and Elections Committee and on July 24, 2007, it was reported in the House. .

    A substitute provided by Rep. Griffin on September 25, 2008 replaces the version of the bill with a similar version that establishes that if 5% of the statewide election ballots are unable to be counted for whatever reason, the no-reason absentee voting provision would be repealed automatically. The revision passed in the House on September 25, 2008.

    Another substitution was introduced in the House on September 25, 2008 to revise details of the bill without altering the substance of it. This revision failed in the House.

    This bill passed in the House by a vote of 65 to 41 on September 25, 2008. It was accepted by the Senate on November 5, 2008 where it was submitted to the Senate Government Operations and Reform Committee.

    Another alteration to the Michigan voting process is possible through HB4090.
