Polling places in Michigan jurisdictions holding May 3rd elections will be open from 7 a.m.-8 p.m.
Most elections taking place will be for millages or local-level elected positions. However, there will be four House districts holding special elections to fill vacant seats. These districts are:
- 15th in Wayne County
- 36th in Macomb County
- 43rd in Oakland County
- 74th in Kent County.
Even if eligible citizens have not yet registered to vote, they can register and vote at their city or township clerk’s office until 8 p.m. A document verifying residency will be required, such as a utility bill. Digital copies of a document will also be accepted.
“Voting is how you make your voice heard in your community,” said Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson. “And in Michigan voters have multiple secure and convenient options to cast their ballot and know that it will be counted.”
