On the anniversary of the Voting Rights Act, faith leaders in Michigan will reflect on the faith communities’ crucial role in the passing of the Voting Rights Act, discuss the current state of voting rights and call for necessary reforms to protect the vote. Norma Bailey will speak on the panel representing Unitarian Universalism, the Michigan Unitarian Universalist Social Justice Network (MUUSJN), and UUFCM. The event will be livestreamed on Facebook Live at 6:30 pm.
The League of Women Voters is going to provide information about voting to the people who use the services of the Strickler Center (Infant Pantry, Care Store, and Food Pantry) at 1114 W. High Street. Every other Wednesday and Saturday through October, families in cars drive through slowly to get products they need to survive. The League will also have a table to pass out voting information, and this is where we need volunteers – two people per session. Click this sign-up sheet link - then type in your name and contact information. Further information will be provided once we have the volunteer list. If you have questions, feel free to contact Norma Bailey. Please join us in this effort.
The deadline for mailing your absentee ballot to your clerk is Friday, July 31. However, Michigan’s Secretary of State is recommending, due to delays in the postal service, that you now complete your absentee ballot and directly drop it off at your local clerk’s office or at their local drop box. Click here for list of Michigan drop boxes. You can still drop your ballot off no later than 8 p.m. on August 4, Michigan’s primary election day. For additional information, read the full alert from the League of Women Voters.
Both the City of Mt. Pleasant and Union Township are hiring election inspectors.
