Senator Peters holds an M.B.A. in Finance and was able to speak to the students about bringing a business mindset to Washington, D.C. He discussed some of his legislative work that draws on his finance background, such as his work surrounding audits at the Department of Defense.. Sen. Peters also discussed the importance of engagement in public policy and offered advice to the students on how they can involve themselves in the legislative process.

    August 2, 2018 by Mark Rivett

    Key Points:

    • First-time voters in Michigan must vote in person.
    • To obtain an absentee ballot visit your city/township or county clerk’s office with a valid photo identification: Driver’s license or student ID.
    • Visit a Secretary of State office and ask them to verify your voter registration. Request an absentee ballot if you will be on campus in November.
    • Vote in person during the August 7th primary. Request an absentee ballot if you will be on campus in November.

    Stephanie Sim (Stamps BFA ’19) explains it all in this handy video that she made in collaboration with Stamps professor Stephanie Rowden as part of the upcoming Fall 2018 course, “Voting is Sexy.” Exercise your right to vote & help U-M win the Big Ten Voting challenge!
