Our democracy is at a social and environmental crossroad.  Be part of choosing which direction we take! The best new thing about voting this year is we all have access to absentee ballots. You need not leave the house to cast your vote.  You must be registered to vote before you can ask to absentee vote.

Register to vote with the Secretary of State, your local township or city’s clerk, or online @

Absentee voter applications are available from your local township or city’s clerk or online @:

Note that the current state absentee ballot application is for both the March presidential primary and the November full election.  On your application you can also request to be placed on the permanent absentee voter list.

If you never voted because you think nothing ever changes; now is your chance to change that.
