GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – Foster Swift attorneys Laura J. Genovich and Cody A. Mott have launched a Michigan Election Law Blog to address election and campaign finance law topics, questions, and concerns.
The blog seeks to expand readers’ understanding of campaign and election laws, which in turn will help them better navigate and participate in the democratic process – whether as a candidate, committee, municipality or other public body, non-profit, or for-profit business.
“Many of the laws in this area are very nuanced and simple mistakes like linking to the wrong website or incorrectly using the ‘magic words’ can result in a fine or punishment,” Mott advises.
The topics this blog will address include:
- Campaign Finance under the Michigan Campaign Finance Act (MCFA)
- Rules for Candidates and Committees
- Update Alerts and Upcoming Deadlines
