Are you registered to Vote in the August Primary?

Your Vote Counts ButtonMonday July 9 is the last day to register to vote in the August Primary Election.  Are you registered to vote?  The Michigan Secretary of State provides a tool to check to see if you’re already registered.  There’s also a list of candidates on the August Primary ballot.

What’s a primary election? “”A primary election is an election in which registered voters select a candidate that they believe should be a political party’s candidate for elected office to run in the general election. They are also used to choose convention delegates and party leaders. Primaries are state-level and local-level elections that take place prior to a general election. Michigan utilizes an open primary system, in which registered voters do not have to be members of a party to vote in that party’s primary.” Wikipedia

Be sure you can vote – and then be sure to vote!  Check out our Voting 2018 Subject Guide!
