LANSING (WWJ) - Secretary of State Ruth Johnson reminds residents that they have until Tuesday, October 11, to register in order to vote in the Nov. 8 general election.
To register, applicants must be at least 18 years old by election day and be a U.S. citizen. Applicants must also be residents of Michigan and of the city or township in which they wish to register.
Voters may register by mail, at their county, city or township clerk’s office or by visiting any Secretary of State branch office. A mail-in form is available online.
To check registration status, residents may visit the online Michigan Voter Information Center, where they can also find information on absentee voting, Michigan’s voter identification requirement, how to use voting equipment and how to contact their local clerk. In addition, they will find a map to their local polling place and a sample ballot.
