About This Blog

The purpose of the Michigan Election Law Blog is 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.

In addition to handling ballot initiatives for Michigan municipalities, Foster Swift attorneys regularly counsel clients on the laws and rules pertaining to federal and state lobbying, political contributions, political action committees, ethics, the use of corporate facilities for political purposes and corporate guidelines on related issues.
