With less than 4 weeks until the November 3rd General Election, the Federation’s Jewish Community Relations Committee is here to help get out the vote!
- The most important step in voting is ensuring you are registered. Check your status and if need be, register or update your voter information here. If you forget to check before Election Day, Michigan does allow same-day registration, meaning you can register and vote at the same time, but we recommend checking your registration and registering as soon as possible!
- Due to COVID-19 safety precautions, many of us will be skipping the voting booth in favor of mail-in ballots. Since 2018, Michigan allows all registered and eligible Michigan voters to vote by mail without providing a reason but you need to request your absentee ballot by October 30, 2020. Check out this interactive voter guide to learn all you need to know about voting in Michigan.
- This election covers much more than just the Presidential race. From senate races to city proposals, your vote counts! Visit Ballotpedia to learn more about the candidates and initiatives on this year’s ballot.
