Today is the deadline for Michigan citizens to register to vote online, by mail

Today, Oct. 24, is the last day for Michigan residents to register to vote online or by mail for the Nov. 8 general election. Eligible Michigan citizens can register online at until midnight tonight, or by mail if their application is postmarked with today's date. After today, residents can still register to vote in person at their local clerk’s office until 8 p.m. on Election Day.
"Michigan voters have multiple safe and secure options to make their voices heard in their communities and registering to vote is the first step,” said Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson. “Eligible citizens should register online today or make a plan to register in person at their city or township clerk’s office by 8 p.m. on November 8.”
Citizens who have already registered can still request an absentee ballot online at, or at their local election clerk's office. At their clerk’s office, they can also be issued an absentee ballot, vote it, and return it in the same visit.
Voters who already have their absentee ballot are encouraged to mail it today to avoid postal delays, or hand-deliver their absentee ballot to their clerk’s office or secure drop box. All ballots must be received by clerks by 8 p.m. on Election Day to be counted.
Polls will be open for in-person voting from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. on Nov. 8.
