Hi Michigan, if you want to vote in the  2022 midterm elections there are three   steps you need to take.

Register, make  your plan, and of course, vote.   Let's start with getting registered. If you  have a Michigan ID or driver's license, you can   register online.

If not, you’ll need to print out  an application form and mail it in. Links to both   are at But either way  you register, you need to do it by October 24th.   If you miss that deadline though, don’t  worry.

You can still register in person   at your city clerk’’s office or at your polling  place all the way through election day.   Then it’s time to make your plan  for how you’re going to vote.   If you’re going to be out of town on election  day or just want to vote early from the   comfort of your own couch, you can request  that your ballot be mailed to you.   You have until November 4th to request an  absentee ballot, but the sooner you ask for one,   the sooner you can get it, fill it out,  and mail it back or drop it in a drop box   so that it gets to your city clerk’s office no  later than November 8th. Michigan recommends   that you plan for voting by mail to at least  take two weeks from start to finish.   You can also vote in person early from  September 29th through November 7th at   your city clerk’s office. You can find all those  locations and their hours at this link.   Or you can vote on election day on November 8th.  You can look up where you’ll vote at that same   link, and polls are open from 7am to 8pm.

You’ll also need to bring a photo ID with   you. A Michigan driver's license,  state ID, passport, military ID,   tribal ID, or student ID all work. Once you have your plan for how you’re going   to vote, where you need to go, what time you’re  going to vote, and what ID you’re going to bring,   you just need to follow the plan, and  go vote on or before November 8th.   If you want to know everything that you can vote  for ahead of time, you can find a sample ballot at so you have time to  research candidates and make your decisions.   You don’t have to vote for everything for  your ballot to count, but this is your best   chance to choose who gets to make decisions  about your life: all the way from congress   to your city council or school board.

We’ve put all the links for everything you need   to register, vote early, find your polling  place, and locate your sample ballot at Thank you for voting!
