Early voting for Presidential Primary heads into final weekend

Find early voting sites, hours at

LANSING, Mich. – Early voting sites across the state will be open Saturday, Feb. 24 and Sunday, Feb. 25 for the second and final weekend of in-person early voting for Michigan’s Presidential Primary. Election Day is Tuesday, Feb. 27.
More than 50,000 Michigan voters have cast their ballot at an early voting site since the start of early voting last Saturday. Visit to find the nearest early voting site and hours of operation. Municipalities have the option to operate early voting sites through their county or in partnership with other municipalities, so early voting sites may be different than a voter’s usual polling place. 
This is the first statewide election in Michigan’s history in which voters have had the option to cast a ballot in person at an early voting site. At least nine consecutive days of in-person early voting for state and federal elections – including two weekends – is now a constitutional requirement following the 2022 passage of Proposal 2.
Early voting sites operate similarly to Election Day polling places -- voters walk in, receive their ballot, mark their ballot and enter it into the tabulator. Voters who requested and received an absentee ballot have the option to bring that ballot to their early voting site and enter it into the tabulator. Early voting ballots and absentee ballots are not counted until Election Day. 
Michigan citizens can register to vote in person at their clerk’s office with proof of residency now through 8 p.m. on Election Day. Voters can register and cast a ballot on the same day.
On Election Day, Feb. 27, polls will be open from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m.
