You can still register to vote through Election Day!
Now through 8 pm on November 3, 2020, you have only one way to register to vote: visit the city or township clerk’s office where you live and provide “proof of residency.” Documents must have your name and current address. You can show a digital copy of any document. Acceptable documents include:
Make a phone call to every family member and friend you have in Michigan and engage them in a conversation about voting. If they are not registered to vote, do they know how they can yet register? What’s their plan to vote? Do they know where to drop off their absentee ballot? Do they know how to track their ballot? Do they know how to early in person absentee vote? Share with them the websites www.michigan.gov/vote and centralvotes.org to find information about voting, as well as www.vote411.org for information about candidates. You can also share how your values help you make your decisions about your votes.
Find absentee ballot dropboxes in Isabella County. Make sure you deposit your ballot in the dropbox that matches where you are registered to vote.
