The following information was developed by LWVAAA High School Voter Registration volunteers in collaboration with area high school students.  The information was created for students new to voting, but works for everyone.

When the next  election occurs, will you be ready to vote?

 Have you moved recently?  Wonder if your voter registration status is correct?  You can go to the League of Women Voters’ website www.VOTE411.org to check your registration status.  If you need to register here’s a video prepared by and for area high school students about “How to Register to Vote” 

Are you unable to go to the polls because you are busy, lack transportation or for other reasons?  You can vote by mail.  Download an absentee ballot application and send it to your local Clerk's office.

If you would like to be on the permanent voter list and get an absentee ballot application every election go to this Washtenaw County website. You can also check a box on the absentee ballot application to get on the permanent list.

For all the information you will need to vote by mail or in person check out this short video.

And when it’s time to vote, www.VOTE411.org is the place to go for information about the candidates.
