Michigan residents have until Tuesday, Oct. 9 to register to be eligible to vote in the Nov. 6 general election.
“If you would like to vote in the upcoming presidential election, you only have a few more days to register,” Secretary of State Ruth Johnson, Michigan’s chief election officer, said in a press release. “Once you have registered, you have the means to express your voice through one of our greatest Constitutional rights and fundamental freedoms – the right to vote.”
To register to vote, applicants must be at least 18 years old 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.
Voters may register in person at any Secretary of State office or by mail. The mail-in registration form is available at www.michigan.gov/elections.
