Local elections matter: Vote Nov. 5

get out the vote

This November, Michigan residents will vote for local elected officials, ordinances, millages and a host of other issues.

Local elections matter. Local officials directly serve your community and their decisions show up in your everyday life. From school district quality to transportation access to public safety, local governments lead the way in creating change in your community.

Voting in Michigan has never been easier! Thanks to the passing of Proposal 3 last year, 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. Download an application, mail it in and register to vote absentee today!

Check out these resources and share them with your family and friends. Most importantly, get out and vote on Nov. 5!
