LANSING, Mich. (AP) — The Michigan appeals court has again struck down changes to Michigan's ballot drive law, including a limit on how many voter signatures can come from any one region.

Friday's ruling is the latest in a legal fight that began after Republican lawmakers and then-Gov. Rick Snyder enacted the 2018 law. It made it harder to mount ballot initiatives.

Many parts have never taken effect because of lawsuits.

The court negated a 15% cap on signatures from any one congressional district. It also nullified requirements that paid circulators file an affidavit and that petitions say whether circulators are paid or not.
