“Our next big election is just weeks away,” Johnson told attendees, referring to the statewide primary on August 7. “Today’s event is so valuable for getting people engaged and thinking about the election. It’s going to be a long ballot, so we’re telling people to do your research and know before you go.”
During her remarks, Johnson highlighted the Michigan Voter Information Center, the state’s online resource at Michigan.gov/vote where voters can view their ballot ahead of time, find their voting location and much more.
Residents interested in voting in the Aug. 7 election have until Monday, July 9 to register to vote. New voters can register by mail or in person at their county, city or township clerk’s office or by visiting any Secretary of State office.
