On Tuesday, March 10, Michigan voters will make their voices heard on who they believe should run for president in November, and I am hoping that you plan on including your voice in the mix! Haven’t registered to vote yet? Don’t worry! You can still register at your county clerk’s office up until as well as on the day of the Michigan Primary Election.
To prepare for March 10, I encourage you to visit michigan.gov/vote to:
● Confirm you are registered to vote
● Locate your county clerk’s office – if you still need to register
● Locate your precinct – where you will go to vote
● View a sample ballot for your community
● Request an absentee ballot if you can’t make it to the polls
And finally, before you head to the polls, make sure you’re casting an informed vote by doing your research. View a sample ballot so you know what the candidates and issues are. Unsure of where the candidates stand on certain issues? Vote411.org is a fantastic resource to find information on every candidate’s platform. It will also provide you with information on any proposals that may be appearing on the ballot in your community so you can knowledgeably vote for or against them.
Ensure that your voice is heard! Register to vote today, if you haven’t already, and head to the polls on March 10.
