This Tuesday, November 5 is Election Day!
REMEMBER: You can now register to vote through Nov 5
Register and Vote in person with your city clerk, NOT at a precinct. Residency verification is required (e.g. driver's license, state ID card, current utility bill, bank statement, paycheck, other government document). Documents must have name and current address.
REMEMBER: All registered voters can now vote early
The deadline for mailed in early applications has passed, however, you can still drop off your application* in person at the city clerk's office by 4.p.m. Monday, November 4 and get your ballot. You can then complete it, sign, and submit it right then, OR return it the following day (Election Day, Tuesday, November 5) by 8pm.
If you plan to have someone else return your ballot for you, please read and follow the instructions on the envelope carefully or your vote may not be counted.
*Absentee/early voter applications can be obtained at your city clerk's office or online at Michigan.gov/Vote
