LANSING (WWJ) - The Secretary of State is reminding Michigan residents that they have until Monday, July 8 to register in order to vote in the Aug. 6 election.

To register, applicants must be age 18 by Election Day and be U.S. citizens. Applicants must also be residents of Michigan and of the city or township in which they wish to register.

“Voting gives you an important opportunity to speak up regarding what’s happening in your community. I urge any citizens who have not yet registered to vote to do so,” Secretary of State Ruth Johnson said in a statement.

Voters can register by mail or in person at any secretary of state branch.

To check your voter registration status, visit the Michigan Voter Information Center at www.michigan.gov/vote.
