We all understand how important it is to make sure our voices are heard in every election. But millions miss out on the chance to vote because they have forgotten to register or have not updated their registration in time. The goal of National Voter Registration Day is to change all of that.
First observed in 2012, National Voter Registration Day, a non-partisan civic holiday, was established as a reminder to confirm voter registration. First-time voters are encouraged to make sure they are registered. If anything has changed, like address or name, it is important to update voting information. The National Voter Registration Day website includes a handy tool that makes it easy to not only check your registration but also find your polling place, verify deadlines, and more.
To review Michigan-specific information and requirements for the upcoming election, take time to review the Secretary of State website.
Make sure you are registered to vote and know what you need to do to participate. Do not miss this chance to have your voice heard!
