Make a Voting Plan!

Here’s what Michigan residents need to know about voting this year:

Early voting in Michigan began on September 24, 2020 for what is known as “absentee in-person” voting. The period to vote “absentee in-person” runs from 9/24/20 until 11/02/20, but dates and hours may vary depending on where you live.

This year, every registered voter in Michigan can receive a mail-in ballet before November 3rd. Just complete an absentee ballot application (see below!) and submit the request to your local election office.

The deadline to request a ballot must be received by Friday, October 30, 2020. So make sure you’re registered! And, block off time in your schedule to fill out your ballot and mail it in.

If you plan to vote in person, come up with a plan for getting to your local polling station early and safely on Election Day.

Check out the Michigan Voter Information Center for complete voting information including information on accessible voting and how to find your polling place.
