Lt. Governor Gilchrist II Teams Up with Congresswoman Tlaib to Encourage Early Voting in Detroit
LANSING, Mich. -
Lt. Governor Garlin Gilchrist II today teamed up with Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib to release a public service announcement
to encourage Michiganders to vote early by absentee ballot or in person at a clerk’s office or satellite voting location.
Lt. Governor Gilchrist and Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib delivered a powerful message on voting:
“There are three ways to vote: at home via absentee ballot, mailing it in or dropping it off at a dropbox; in person at your clerk's office; or in person at a polling location or satellite location on Election Day.”
• Lt. Governor Garlin Gilchrist
“Contact your city clerk for dropbox locations and early in-person early voting locations. If you have your ballot right now, fill it out, return it today. Voting is a critical way to show up for each other. When we show up for each other, we not only save lives but we really help elevate our voices together.”
• U.S. Representative Rashida Tlaib
Michiganders are encouraged to visit michigan.gov/vote to get more information about their local clerk’s office, view a sample ballot, or explore more tools to make a plan to vote.
If voters want to return their ballot, they should visit michigandropbox.com to find the closest dropbox or go to their local clerk’s office.
