Voting Information and Resources

Published on July 18, 2022 in

On Nov. 8, Southeastern Michigan residents will vote in federal, state and local elections.  

Elections are an opportunity to ensure your voice is heard in shaping both the national agenda and the future of your community. This year, voters will decide which candidates will represent them in Congress, in the state legislature and in local administrative bodies such as school boards.  

It is especially important to vote this year as redistricting changes following the 2020 Census may have affected what your district looks like, who is running in your district and what policies they will focus on. 

Anyone can vote absentee in Michigan, and you can register to vote up to or even on Election Day at your local clerk’s office. Check out the resources below to find out where and how to vote and to see what’s on your ballot.
