LANSING, Mich., July 7, 2021 — Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson announced today improvements in branch office operations to serve hundreds of thousands more Michigan residents. In response, state Rep. Stephanie A. Young (D-Detroit) issued the following statement:

“Turning the corner on COVID includes supporting our state departments as they work to provide necessary services to residents.  I have been working closely with our Secretary of State and will continue supporting Secretary Benson’s efforts to bring our branches into the 21st century and provide the services Michiganders need in convenient and reliable ways.  I applaud the ongoing work Secretary Benson is doing to ensure folks can go into a SOS branch office whenever they need to and can conduct their business quickly.  I won’t stop encouraging my colleagues in the Legislature to join her in this work and put the residents of our great state first.”
