    Hey Michigan – it’s time to vote!
  • 0:06 - 0:07
    First you need to register though
  • 0:07 - 0:09
    And if you’re not sure whether or not
    you’re registered already
  • 0:09 - 0:12
    There’s a link in the description
    where you can go check right now
  • 0:12 - 0:14
    If you aren’t registered
    or if you’ve moved
  • 0:14 - 0:16
    Or changed your name
    since the last election
  • 0:16 - 0:18
    And need to update your registration
    there’s a few ways you can do it
  • 0:18 - 0:21
    If you have a Michigan driver's license
    you can go to the link in the description
  • 0:21 - 0:23
    And register online right now
  • 0:23 - 0:24
    If you don’t have a license
  • 0:24 - 0:27
    Say you’re a student from another state
    or you don’t drive
  • 0:27 - 0:28
    You can still register
  • 0:28 - 0:30
    You’ll just need to print out
    the form in the description
  • 0:30 - 0:32
    Fill it out and mail it to
    your city clerk’s office
  • 0:32 - 0:34
    A link to all their addresses
    is down in the description too
  • 0:34 - 0:38
    Either way you register, the deadline
    to send in your form is October 19th
  • 0:38 - 0:39
    If you miss that deadline
  • 0:39 - 0:41
    You can still register
    all the way through election day
  • 0:41 - 0:43
    By filling out the form and bringing
    it in to your city clerk’s office
  • 0:43 - 0:44
    To turn it in by hand
  • 0:44 - 0:47
    Once you’re registered,
    there’s a few different ways you can vote
  • 0:47 - 0:49
    If you want to vote from the
    comfort of your own home
  • 0:49 - 0:50
    You can request to vote absentee by mail
  • 0:50 - 0:52
    You can use the online
    or the mail-in application
  • 0:52 - 0:54
    There are links to both
    in the description
  • 0:54 - 0:57

    You have until October 30th
    to request your absentee ballot
  • 0:57 - 1:00
    But the sooner you do it, the more time
    you have to get your ballot in the mail,
  • 1:00 - 1:02
    Fill it out at your own pace,
    and send it back before November 3rd
  • 1:02 - 1:05
    You can also vote early in person
    at your county elections office
  • 1:05 - 1:09
    From September 17th to November 2nd
    during their normal business hours
  • 1:09 - 1:11
    Some offices stay open for extra
    weekend and evening hours
  • 1:11 - 1:14
    So check out the link below to find out
    when and where you can vote early in your county
  • 1:14 - 1:16
    If you want to vote on election day on November 3rd though
  • 1:16 - 1:19
    You’ll use the same website you used to check your registration
  • 1:19 - 1:20
    To find out where to go to vote
  • 1:20 - 1:23
    Polls are open from 7am to 8pm
    and you’ll need to show a photo ID
  • 1:23 - 1:26
    A driver’s license, state ID, student ID
  • 1:26 - 1:28
    Passport, military, or tribal ID
    are all acceptable
  • 1:28 - 1:31
    You can also go to the link in the
    description to look at a sample ballot
  • 1:31 - 1:34
    That tells you everything you’ll be able
    to vote for in this year’s elections
  • 1:34 - 1:36
    You don’t have to vote for
    everything on the ballot
  • 1:36 - 1:37
    You can leave things blank if you want to
  • 1:37 - 1:39
    But your local elections
    can be pretty important
  • 1:39 - 1:41
    So it’s worth checking out
    what’s on there ahead of time
  • 1:41 - 1:43
    You can even take a screenshot
    or print it out
  • 1:43 - 1:46
    And bring it to the polls with you
    so you can remember how you want to vote
  • 1:46 - 1:48
    Before you go, the best thing to do
    if you’re going to vote this year
  • 1:48 - 1:50
    Is to make a plan to vote right now
  • 1:50 - 1:52
    From what day you’re gonna register
  • 1:52 - 1:54
    To whether you are gonna
    vote in person or absentee
  • 1:54 - 1:56
    What kind of ID you’re gonna use?
    And where it is?
  • 1:56 - 1:59
    Even what time you’re going to vote
    and how you’re gonna get there
  • 1:59 - 2:01
    Write it down, put it in your notes app,
    text it to a friend
  • 2:01 - 2:03
    Just make a plan
  • 2:03 - 2:06
    So that nothing unexpected stops you
    from being counted on November 3rd
  • 2:06 - 2:07
    All the links you need to
    check your registration
  • 2:07 - 2:09
    And polling location
    are in the description
  • 2:09 - 2:11
    Thanks for being a voter!
