Michigan voters can register and cast ballot in one trip ahead of local elections

Michigan citizens interested in voting in the November 2 local elections can register and fill out an absentee ballot in one trip between now and Election Day.

Citizens who are not yet registered to vote can do so in person at the local clerk’s office from now until 8 p.m. on Election Day.

Voters can also apply for and return an absentee ballot at the clerk’s office in the same trip.

Online registration closes 15 days before an election and is no longer available for the November 2 election.

Voters who already have an absentee ballot should return it as soon as possible by hand-delivering it to the local clerk’s office or ballot drop box.
