Complete Voter Information

Make a voting plan!

  • Voter registration is at an all-time high this year! Because of this, your name may not appear when you search for your registration online. COME TO THE POLLS ANYWAY! You can verify registration on site. We encourage you to stay in line and work with the poll workers to find a way to vote, even if it means submitting a provisional ballot. This only requires proof of residency.  
  • Schedule a time to vote and allow plenty of time. The polls are open from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
  • How will you get to your polling place? Lyft is offering a 50% discount on rides to the polls! Use code VOTEMI1 on the Lyft app. 
  • Make sure you're registered and that you know where you are supposed to vote.
  • Decide how you're voting in each national, state and local race.
