Monday, Oct. 5, is the last day to register to vote in the Nov. 3 election.
To register, applicants must be at least 18 years old by Election Day and be a U.S. citizen. Applicants must also be residents of Michigan and of the city or township in which they wish to register.
Voters may register in person or by mail. The mail-in form is on the Department of State website at www.Michigan.gov/sos. First-time voters 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 overseas.
Those who qualify may vote by absentee ballot.
When at the polls on Election Day, voters will be asked to present photo ID, such as a Michigan driver’s license or state identification card. Anyone who does not have an acceptable form of photo ID or failed to bring it with them to the polls can still vote. They will sign a brief affidavit stating that they are not in possession of photo ID.
Their ballots will be included with all others and counted on Election Day.
