MCL 168.544d further provides that the prescribed form must be in substantial compliance with MCL 168.544c and MCL 168.482 -- two additional provisions of Michigan election law which address the formatting of petitions. A description of the prescribed initiative and referendum petition format and the pertinent provisions of the State Constitution and Michigan election law are included with this informational packet for your reference.
