    Michigan Board of State Canvassers Certifies Vote to Restore Dove Shooting Ban

    We did it! The Board of State Canvassers officially approved and certified the more than 275,000 petition signatures presented by the Committee to Restore the Dove Shooting Ban to place the referendum on the November 2006 ballot. The new dove shooting law is constitutionally be suspended, blocking planned dove shoots for 2005 and 2006 until Michigan voters have the chance to decide the fate of our mourning doves.

    What's Next?
    Mourning doves are traditional backyard songbirds much loved by the people of the state of Michigan. Several recent and historic public opinion polls indicate that the majority of citizens strongly oppose the target shooting of Michigan's Official Bird of Peace. The next step of the campaign is to educate voters about the effort to restore and continue Michigan's long heritage of protecting our mourning doves.

    Please help us get our VOTE NO on the Mourning Dove Proposal message to registered Michigan voters by volunteering or donating today to keep this important campaign going. We need your participation to make it a success on Tuesday, November 7, 2006!
