LANSING, Mich. -

Tuesday is the last day to register to vote in time for the Nov. 6th general election.

To register, applicants must be at least 18 years old by Election Day and be U.S. citizens.

Applicants must also be residents of Michigan and of the city or township in which they wish to register.

Voters may register by mail, at their county, city or township clerk’s office, or by visiting any Secretary of State office.

First-time voters who register by mail must vote in person in their first election, unless they hand-deliver the application to their local clerk, are 60 years old or older, are disabled or are eligible to vote under the Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act.

Residents can view a sample ballot, find their polling location, learn about absentee voting, get information on Michigan’s voter ID laws and view contact information for their local clerk at www.Michigan.gov/vote.

The polls will be open on Election Day from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Additional election information and the mail-in registration form is available at www.Michigan.gov/elections.
