LANSING (AP) — Secretary of State Ruth Johnson reminds Michigan residents that they have until Tuesday, Oct. 11 to register in order to vote in the Nov. 8 general election.
This year's election mostly affects local government seats, although voters in Republican Rep. Paul Scott's Genesee County district are likely to get the chance to decide if he should be recalled.
To register, applicants must be at least 18 years old by election day and be U.S. citizens. Applicants also must be residents of Michigan and of the city or township in which they wish to register.
Voters may register by mail, at their county, city or township clerk's office or by visiting any secretary of state branch office. The mail-in form is available on the Web.
Registration status can be checked at www.Michigan.gov/vote.
