Michigan residents have until Monday, Oct. 5, to register to vote in the Nov. 3 election. Elections will be held in 74 of Michigan's 83 counties.
Voters may register by mail or in person at their county, city or township clerk's office or by visiting any Secretary of State office. The mail-in form is available at http://www.michigan.gov/sos/0,1607,7-127-1633---,00.html
First-time voters who register by mail must vote in person in their first election, unless they hand-deliver the application to their local clerk, are 60 years old or older, are disabled or are eligible to vote under the Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act.
To register to vote, applicants must be at least 18 years old by Election Day and U.S. citizens. Applicants also must be residents of Michigan and of the city or township in which they wish to register. Polls will be open on Election Day from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
