The former Dean of Wayne St. University Law School, Joselyn Benson, has declared that she will run for Michigan Sec. of State in 2018. If elected she will be one of the most qualified persons to ever hold that office. She has researched the best practices of the office of Sec. of State prior to her declaration and has based her proposed changes in voting procedures on that research. She is an ardent supporter of protecting voting rights and making sure that all citizens have the opportunity to exercise their Consitutional right to vote without suppression.
