Proposal 3 passes in Michigan allowing for easier access to voting

(WXYZ) — Polling places throughout Michigan will be open from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. on Election Day -- Tuesday, May 7, 2019

Residents must vote at their designated polling place and that location is based on where you live.

Find your polling place / View sample ballot

The state has created a tool to help you identify where you must go to vote. You can also view a sample ballot that will look just like the one you see when you arrive to vote.

New rules also go into effect for Michigan voters on May 7. Here's what you need to know.

  • You can register to vote through Election Day. On May 7, register in person with your township or city clerk, but not at a precinct. All voters who register on Election Day will be given a ballot and can vote.
  • Remember that residency verification is required and these are the acceptable documents: Driver's license, State ID card, current utility bill, bank statement, paycheck, government check, other government document. These documents must have name and current address on them. Digital copies are acceptable.
  • All voters can vote early. Applications must be either mailed in by 5 p.m. the Friday before an election, or dropped off in person at their township or city clerk's office before 4 p.m. the Monday before Election Day. For more information, click here .
