Get out the vote

Published on July 2, 2020 in


Elections have an immense impact on our daily lives, from the investments we make in health care to the quality of our schools. This year, we’ll vote for elected officials at every level of government, from a presidential candidate who will guide us as a nation to the local officials who directly serve our communities. To truly represent the best interests of the entire community, we must be informed when voting.

Voting in Michigan has never been easier! Thanks to the passing of Proposal 3 two years ago, you can register to vote by mail up to 15 days before an election or register in-person up to or even on Election Day. You can also get an absentee ballot for any reason, allowing you to conveniently vote ahead of time. You can even request an absentee ballot online! Click here to request your absentee ballot today!

Check out these resources and share them with your family and friends. And most importantly, get out and vote in the primary election on Aug. 4 and the general election on Nov. 3!
