Voters across Michigan will decide Proposal 20-2. This is a proposed constitutional amendment to require a search warrant in order to access a person’s electronic data or electronic communications. 

 This proposed constitutional amendment would:

• Prohibit unreasonable searches or seizures of a person’s electronic data and electronic communications.

• Require a search warrant to access a person’s electronic data or electronic communications, under the same conditions currently required for the government to obtain a search warrant to search a person’s house or seize a person’s things.

 Proposal 2 would add language to the Michigan State Constitution that requires a search warrant to access electronic data or electronic communications. The ballot measure would also state that electronic data and electronic communications are secure from unreasonable searches and seizures.

 According to ballotpedia.com, a “yes” vote supports this constitutional amendment to require a search warrant to access a person’s electronic data and electronic communications.

 A “no” vote opposes this constitutional amendment to require a search warrant to access a person’s electronic data and electronic communications.
