All races on the ballot are important, not just the ones for the president or your congressperson. Remember to research the races ahead of time - you can view your ballot (you will need to input your address) and see non-partisan information about each of the candidates, for every race, HERE.

You are now able to register to vote online!
If you don't have a Michigan driver's license or state ID, you can register via a paper copy of the form and mail it to your local clerk via the postal service.
You can now apply for an absent voter ballot online! You no longer need a reason to vote absentee, nor do you need to vote in person the first time after registering (deadline for requesting a ballot online: November 4).
Requesting a ballot means that the clerk will mail it via USPS to your address. You will then fill the ballot out by hand and either mail it back (please note: postage is $0.65, NOT $0.55) or deliver it to your clerk's office. If you choose to mail your ballot back, you MUST allow enough time for it to reach the clerk's office by 8 pm on election day. If you are able to drop it off at your clerk's office, you will have more time to submit the request. Again, it is very important that you allow enough time for the ballot to be mailed to you and for you to then mail it back.
