(CNN)President Donald Trump on Wednesday lashed out at officials in two swing states, Michigan and Nevada, over their moves to make it easier for more voters to cast their ballots by mail ahead of the November election, highlighting his growing anger over mail-in voting changes that he contends will hurt his chances of reelection.

And in Michigan, the state's Democratic secretary of state said this week that all eligible voters would be mailed an absentee ballot application ahead of the November general election.

Michigan is one of dozens of states that allow voters to cast their ballot by mail for any reason and it is a key swing state in the November presidential election.

Other secretaries of state, including Republicans, have sent absentee ballot applications to all voters ahead of upcoming elections.

And Trump campaign spokesman Tim Murtaugh told CNN that the party does not oppose absentee voting, but rather opposes sending all voters a ballot without an application.

In Nevada, also a swing state that will be hotly contested in November, the state's Republican secretary of state moved to mail ballots to all registered voters ahead of the state's primary.
