You really have to wonder about the motivations of people that don't want voters to be informed.

Local officials sue to block law prohibiting ballot info

School and local government officials have filed a federal lawsuit to block a new Michigan law that restricts them from informing voters about ballot issues. The complaint Tuesday against the state alleges the “gag order” law unconstitutionally infringes on free speech rights. Local officials are seeking an injunction so they can disseminate information before March 8 elections.

Subsection 57(3) of Public Act 269, which amended Michigan’s Campaign Finance Act, prohibits elected and appointed public and school officials from providing factual information to voters about local ballot measures within 60 days of an elections within 60 days of an election.
