Michigan lawmakers approved a bill on Thursday that gives workers more time to prep the more than 2 million absentee ballots for counting that are expected to roll in for the upcoming election.

Clerks in the state’s largest cities will be given 10 additional hours to sort absentee ballots ahead of the count and also be allowed to work in shifts after many had to work all night during the August primaries.

Workers will be required to follow up with any voters whose ballot has issues with the signature on the outside. Drop boxes must be put under video surveillance.

The bill, which was passed the same day as absentee voting began in the state, is expected to be signed by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer after sailing through Michigan’s Republican-controlled House and Senate.

The vote passed the House by a measure of 94 to 11 after clearing the Senate by a tally of 34 to 2.

Once signed, the new law will give clerks the ability to open the outer absentee ballot envelopes, but not the secrecy envelopes, and sort from them from 10 a.m. ET to 8 p.m. ET on Nov. 2, the day before the election. Absentee ballots cannot be counted until Election Day.

Cities that intend to use the extra time, which applies to those with 25,000 people or more, must alert the state at least 20 days in advance.

Biden currently leads Trump in Michigan by 5.2 points, according to an average of polls compiled by Real Clear Politics, just outside the margin of error.

Trump won the state in 2016 by 0.3 points after the polls showed former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton with a 3.4-point lead going into Election Day.

Anthony Joshua vs Oleksandr Usyk 2 weigh in: When does it start and how can I watch for FREE?

ANTHONY JOSHUA and Oleksandr Usyk finally face off this weekend in their massive rematch in Saudi Arabia.

But before fight night, the pair will tip the scales with defending champion Usyk looking to have bulked up considerably from the first fight.

2Anthony Joshua is gearing up for the big rematch

Last time out, in September 2021, there was over a STONE of difference between the pair with AJ weighing in at 17st 2bs to Usyk's 15st 8lbs.

But this time Usyk could weigh over 16st.

According to trainer Dave Coldwell, who coached Tony Bellew against the heavyweight champion, this is the wrong approach to take.

Coldwell said: “From an Usyk point of view, I get that he is going to be more aggressive and look to land bigger shots but with his mobility and speed being his two greatest assets they will take a hit.

"It’s going to slow him down, if you’re losing speed, you’re giving more options to be hit and not only that I believe that AJ really needs to focus on going to Usyk’s body to take away his legs."
