Voter Rights


On Tuesday, Sept. 24, 2019, National Voter Registration Day, Michigan voting law changed. The result of overwhelming support for Michigan's Proposal 3 in 2018 is:

  • Anyone can now vote early in person or by absentee ballot--no reason is needed. 

  • You can register at the clerk’s office the same day you vote, even on Election Day.

If you vote using an absentee ballot do NOT vote in both the Democrat and Republican columns otherwise your ballot will be invalidated.
