    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.
