Plan to Vote in November? Register by Oct. 9

Wyandotte City Clerk William Griggs is urging voters to study the ballot before Election Day.

The deadline to register to vote in the Nov. 6 general election is just around the corner. 

Voters have until Oct. 9 to register at Wyandotte City Hall, any Secretary of State office or by mail.

In order to vote, you must:

  • be 18 years or older on or before Election Day
  • be a citizen of the U.S.
  • have lived in Michigan for at least 30 days
  • be registered on or before the close of registration

People who will be unavailable to vote in person on Election Day can apply for an absentee ballot. (See the PDF to the right for an application form.)

Once you're geared up and ready to vote, Wyandotte City Clerk William Griggs has some words of advice: Study the ballot before Election Day so you'll know how you want to vote.

Because of the number of items to be decided, Wayne County residents will see a two-page ballot in November.

"It’s extremely important that you pay close attention in terms of what you can read and where you can read it, relative to the up and coming election," Griggs said. "There are 12 proposals in this election and they cover state and county proposals, six each. So it’s imperative that you take the time to review those so when you go to cast your ballot you’ll know how you’ll want to vote, yes or no."

when is a "Sample" ballot available??

Great question, Bill. I actually went looking for one to post with this story, but couldn't find one. When one becomes available, I'll post it here and will let you know.

A great place to check for the "sample" ballot when it's available is Publius. The website is www.publius.org . You can also check there if you are registered to vote, where's your polling location, get an absentee ballot application and more. Please exercise your right to vote!

You can view a sample ballot through the State of Michigan's website. https://webapps.sos.state.mi.us/mivote/SelectPublicBallot.aspx
