If You Want To Vote; You’ve Got To Be Registered

DETROIT (WWJ) – Michiganders have only two more days to register to vote in the November election.

Secretary of State Ruth Johnson says that potential voters can register at the county, city, or township clerk’s office or at any Secretary of State office.

The power of voting was shared in Grosse Pointe where the Mayor of New York City was stumping for Hillary Clinton.

Bill DeBlasio told the room of about 40 people that he’s envious of the opportunity that voters have in Michigan — since we may be considered a swing state in the race for the presidency.

“So 30 or 40 people – with four weeks to go – I think we can safely say that this group will reach hundreds of people who could actually show up and vote. You could say easily thousands of people … Remember the election in 2000 in Florida — this country’s fate was determined by 300 voters.”

Tuesday, October 11, is the deadline to register.

There’s a mail-in form at michigan.gov/elections, but at this late time, don’t chance it.

Absentee ballots can be requested up to the Saturday before the November election, but only those who qualify for those early votes can cast them.
