Last Call to Register Online or by Mail

Today, Oct. 19 is the LAST DAY you can register to vote online or by mail in Michigan. If you haven’t registered yet, do it today and do it online, as US Mail likely cannot postmark it today and have it delivered by tomorrow.

The LAST DAY to request an absentee ballot is Oct. 30 but voters are advised to do it NOW due to mail delivery challenges.

Register to Vote

The Michigan Voter Information Center website, operated by the Michigan Secretary of State, is the place to: register online; check to see where your polling place for in-person is location (many polling locations have changed due to Covid); or, check to see if your absentee ballot has been received.

For more, see the 2020Vote Subject Guide.

Have You Voted Yet?

If not, why not? Michigan law allows any registered Michigan voter to choose to vote using an absentee ballot without having to have an “acceptable” reason. 2020 with rising Covid numbers has got to be the year that absentee voting makes smart sense!

If you haven’t registered yet, do it online HERE before October 19 – the LAST DAY TO REGISTER ONLINE. Despite erroneous social media messages to the contrary, Michigan voters can register IN-PERSON up to the Nov. 3rd Election Day at designated locations in each town. Registration is NOT available at your polling place on Election Day.

If you’ve already voted, check to see that your ballot has been received at: https://mvic.sos.state.mi.us/Home/VoteAtHome/#arrive
