Here is the general voter suppression blog.
This blog will try to list some of the more blatant voter suppression efforts attempted in Michigan by the criminal, racist, unpatriotic Republican party.
Democracy hating GOP criminals (DeJoy and others) crippled the USPS system to steal the election by suppressing the votes
This is true of all swing states where they are facing major delays in returning ballots on time, USPS data shows.

The delays loom large over 28 states that require ballots to reach election officials by Election Day to be counted. https://t.co/DJmo97xODx
Maddow on on-time mail percentages in key battlegrounds:— The Daily Edge (@TheDailyEdge) October 29, 2020
Northern Ohio: 56%
South Florida: 63%
Trump and DeJoy have throttled the US mail in key Democratic strongholds. It is now too late to trust the mail in states that require ballots by Nov. 3.
A federal judge ordered the U.S. Postal Service to implement “extraordinary measures” in 22 districts across the U.S. — including several in battleground states — where on-time delivery of ballots has dipped below a rate of 90% for two days this week. https://t.co/7gJAYYgPXG— The New York Times (@nytimes) October 31, 2020
This is why I BEGGED and BEGGED and BEGGED and BEGGED the House to hold ADDITIONAL HEARINGS and to let POSTAL WORKERS testify and not just the top brass. https://t.co/3v1TOnx3Cp— Don Winslow (@donwinslow) October 30, 2020

Don't accept this.
This was Trump and DeJoy's plan all along. https://t.co/3v1TOnx3Cp
Given Supreme Court rulings on mail ballots and Trump's effort to undermine the Postal Service, I strongly suggest that you now vote in person - try early voting or find a drop box. Protect your health but don’t let anyone deprive you of your most precious right. Have a plan.— Eric Holder (@EricHolder) October 27, 2020

GOP Court overturns extension for absentee ballots
So Michigan is reverting to having a strict Nov. 3 receipt deadline, *even if* your ballot was postmarked in time. This could toss thousands of ballots.— Taniel (@Taniel) October 16, 2020
If you're voting by mail, you know to do it early early early. https://t.co/10oF6pDUae

Voter suppression in 2016 that swung Michigan to Trump
This @CNN piece re: Black voters saying how fewer votes HRC got in Wayne County completely IGNORES the 75K votes that were tossed out in Detroit, which is in Wayne County. The suggestion that Black voters failed when, in fact, they DID show up is 🤯🤬 GOP voter suppression pic.twitter.com/UKywylXtHq— @tiffanydcross (@TiffanyDCross) October 21, 2020
