Secretary of State Ruth Johnson reminds Michigan residents to celebrate September as National Voter Registration Month by getting registered to vote and encouraging others to do so.
“If you have not yet registered, now is the time to do it so that you are able to vote in the November general election,” Johnson said. “If you’re already registered but need to update your information, now is also the ideal time to take care of that. All of this preparation allows you to participate in our democracy by casting a ballot.”
Residents can register to vote at a Secretary of State office, their local city, township or county clerk’s office, military recruitment centers, voter registration drives and select state agency offices. Mail-in voter registration forms are available at www.michigan.gov/sos [links.govdelivery.com].
Johnson reminds residents to visit the online Michigan Voter Information Center, a single, comprehensive source designed for voter convenience at www.Michigan.gov/vote [links.govdelivery.com]. The site contains sample ballots, as well as information on absentee ballots, polling locations, voting systems and candidates. A mobile version is also available.
The voter registration deadline for the November general election is Oct. 9.
National Voter Registration Day will be observed on Tuesday, Sept. 25. The Secretary of State Mobile Office will hold a voter registration drive at Grand Valley State University from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on that date. The stop is just one of several college and university visits the Mobile Office is making this fall to help students and others register to vote. More information on the tour is available here [links.govdelivery.com].
