Preparing for the Nov 3 General Election
From the LWV of Michigan:
Voting experts predict 6 million will vote in November, most by absentee ballot.
By September 1, we expect to know all candidate names, both major and third-party, and any ballot proposals for the November 3 election. Absentee ballots will be available after September 19, and voting an absentee ballot at the clerk's office can begin September 24. Strategies to meet the many challenges we face this season will evolve and be shared.
Prepare for the election
