Did You Know You Can Already Vote in Michigan's Primary?
The nation's eyes may be on Iowa and New Hampshire right now, but soon it will be Michigan's turn to make its choice for the party's 2020 Democratic presidential nominee.
Michigan's presidential primary is set for March 10, when polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., but you can vote absentee now. Beware, however, that some candidates on Michigan's ballot may have dropped out of the race by the time of our primary. And be sure to return your absentee ballot to your local clerk by 8 p.m. March 10 or it will not count!
Here are some resources to make sure you are ready to make your choice:
--Check your voter registration, view your sample ballot, and track the progress of your absentee ballot here.
--Sign up to receive an application for an absentee ballot for this and all future elections by downloading this application, printing it out, signing it, and taking or mailing to your local clerk. Remember, anyone can vote absentee now without stating a reason, making it easy to vote from home! And be sure to return your ballot to your clerk's office by 8 p.m. on March 10 or it will not count.
--Call the Michigan Democratic Party's toll-free Voter Assistance Hotline, 833-MI-VOTES (833-648-6837), if you run into problems registering to vote or voting. Make sure you are ready to express your choice on March 10!
