“The right to vote is the foundation of our democracy, and we have ensured that voters have multiple options to conveniently and safely exercise that right during the pandemic,” said Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson. “In coordination with local jurisdictions and clerks across the state, we continue to make it easier to vote and harder to cheat in Michigan elections.”

Michigan citizens who have not yet registered are still able to do so at their election clerk’s office Monday and until 8 p.m. on Tuesday.

“I encourage Michiganders to cast their vote in the upcoming election, whether you drop your absentee ballot at your local clerk’s office or decide to vote safely in person on Tuesday,” said Governor Gretchen Whitmer. “I applaud Secretary Benson and our local clerks for the tireless, round-the-clock work to ensure Michiganders can vote safely as we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic. Remember, if you’re voting absentee, don’t drop your ballot in the mail, take it to your clerk’s office by 8 p.m. on Tuesday.”
