It dang sure won't be a Democrat or an incumbent.

I'll probably vote Constitution Party.

Enough voter suppression. Why are all the Republican candidates afraid to debate? What are they hiding? Do they all have business operations in China?

I know Scotty Boman, he is smart, honest, and believes in the Constitution of the United States.

I saw the debate between both candidates on "Off the Record" with Tim Skubick. Both seemed competent candidates, but I felt Benson had a better grasp on the issues. She campaigned early on, did her homework and covered a lot of ground. I think that voters will be pleased with her job performance.

Saw her on PBS, seems very informed and has great ideas in preventing voter fraud. Unlike the other candidates who seem to deny there is a problem.

How can you say that Republicans are afraid to debate? All party's are willing to debate, where have you been? And as far as the China business comment goes, are we not allowed to be free to conduct business anywhere we want? Its when you run a government to the point of taking over the private sectors (ie; Education, Michigan Bell, Edison, Bill Gates, GM, Chrysler, just to name a few!) is when you start to lose your freedom. Just open your mind and you too will see the light. That one is for you Mr. Edison.

Hopefully he repeals most of the SOS laws and makes the government smaller. The Granholm wrecking ball that has hit the state has to be stopped.

I hope and pray that the people of this state have learned something since the last election.

Do you want our elections to be fair??? She wants same day registration to vote as well as no I.D..She might be a slick talker but she cannot answer questions about these two issues...George Soros has put tons of money into the SOS races around the country...He is an admitted socialist. What do you suppose that's all about???

Don't know what debate you watched, but Benson seem a bit "lost" on some of the questions. Ruth on the other hand was informed, to the point and answered the questions. I kept wanting to "help" Benson, but then again, perspective plays a large part in this, doesn't it. Ruth recognizes there is fraud, stated the figures that showed it and has real solutions for it.

I understand people want their votes to count, but please quit trying to vote several times under different names and sometimes the same addresses for 20 people. I was a monitor a few years back, it happens and Terry Lynn Land did a lot to address the issue. I think Ruth will go further than Benson would in insuring an actual tally.

It's time for a change in the Secretary of State's office. Republicans have controlled the office for 16 years and for 16 years, Michigan has been lagging behind the rest of the nation when it comes to election reform.

When Richard Austin was Secretary of State, Michigan led the nation with reforms such as Motor Voter, which enabled residents to register to vote when they got their driver's license. But since then, Michigan has done nothing to move forward or reform our system.

It's time for reforms in our Secretary of State's office and Jocelyn Benson is the candidate who will make it happen. Benson supports reforms like early voting - which generally allows voters to vote in-person prior to Election Day. Early voting already exists in more than 30 other states and the program has enjoyed tremendous success and has broad bipartisan support.

Benson wants to make voting easier and more secure in Michigan. Early voting would help increase turnout and make voting more convenient.

Her opponent, Republican Ruth Johnson, represents more of the same old failed policies. Johnson said in the debate last week that she opposes early voting and that this much-needed reform "doesn't work" in Michigan. Doesn't work? More than two-thirds of the country has already made early voting work.

Check out this video


Why does Ruth Johnson oppose early voting? Why doesn't she want to make voting easier and more convenient for all of us?

It's time to reform government in Michigan. It's time to modernize our election system and catch-up to the rest of the country. Jocelyn Benson will make Michigan a leader once again. Benson is the reformer we need. Vote Benson for Secretary of State.

You are a psychotic Republican troll who is trying to impersonate me. I don't change avatars. I always post from Dearborn, unregistered. You post from Detroit, unregistered or from Dearborn, registered. You are a freaking lunatic, set on destroying dialogs and democracy.

Note that this deceitful troll will use dozens of different avatars and locations to pretend to be his own crowd. He goes by JLZ, Bogi33, HPQ, Really, etc.

I would appreciate any links to prove your claim. False reports abound in anonymous emails and such, but what legal cases have been filed in Michigan courts attesting to your claim? Your anecdotal experience is dubious at best.

Now come on PGW, tell me what debate you watched. Benson looked like a fool. As for "false" reports, leave those up to the Dems..It was Johnson who found out the Democratic impersonation of the Tea Party, you know the ones the Dems tried to rig voting in Oakland County. Put a Dem in charge of a MI election, have it span over several days, you might just as well have had Jackie Currie running the polls, God rest her corrupt soul.
