Check what will be on your ballot.
With the March 10th Michigan Presidential Primary Election just around the corner, be sure to check out what the candidates think at Vote411.org, the League of Women Voters Election Information website. Any candidate who meets FEC guidelines for eligibility to receive matching campaign funds is asked to participate. You will need to specify a party in order to see who is on the ballot. If there is only one viable candidate in a party, then that candidate was not asked to participate, so no information will be shown. Also, any proposals on your ballot are described for you.
See if your voter registration is up-to-date.
In addition to checking out your ballot, you can register to vote online in Michigan now, and check your voter registration status from Vote411. There is also personalized voting information like finding your polling place and discovering upcoming debates in your area. Vote411 is funded with LWV Education Fund dollars.
March 10th Michigan Presidential Primary absentee ballots are now available at your city or township clerk’s office. The Michigan.gov/vote website has all your voting information, including absentee ballot information. With the passage of Proposal 3 in 2018, it is easier for voters to vote absentee. Here is what you need to do as stated on the SOS Michigan.gov/vote site.
See you at the polls for the Presidential Primary on March 10th, or vote early/absentee through your clerk’s office!
