    Hey, Michigan.
    It's time to vote.
  • 0:06 - 0:07
    First, you need to register.
  • 0:07 - 0:09
    And if you're not sure whether
    you're registered already,
  • 0:09 - 0:12
    there's a link in the description
    where you can go check right now.
  • 0:12 - 0:16
    If you aren't registered or if you've moved
    or changed your name since the last election
  • 0:16 - 0:19
    and need to update your registration,
    there's a few ways you can do it.
  • 0:19 - 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 - 0:26
    If you don't have a license, say you're
    a student from another state
  • 0:26 - 0:28
    or you don't drive you can still register.
  • 0:28 - 0:30
    You need to just print out
    the form of 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 you're registered the deadline
    in your form is October 19.
  • 0:38 - 0:40
    If you miss that deadline,
    you can still register all the way
  • 0:40 - 0:43
    through election day by filling out
    the form and bring it
  • 0:43 - 0:44
    into your city clerk's office
    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 - 0:48
    If you want to vote from
    the comfort of your own home
  • 0:48 - 0:50
    you can request to vote
    absentee by mail.
  • 0:50 - 0:53
    You can use the online
    or the mailing application.
  • 0:53 - 0:54
    There are links to both in the description.
  • 0:54 - 0:56
    You have until October 30th to request
  • 0:56 - 0:58
    your absentee ballot, but the sooner
    you do it the more time
  • 0:58 - 1:00
    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 election 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 - 1:13
    So check out the link below
    to find out when and where
  • 1:13 - 1:14
    you can vote early in your county.
  • 1:14 - 1:17
    If you want to vote on election day
    on November 3rd though
  • 1:17 - 1:19
    you 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 - 1:35
    You don’t have to vote
    for everything on the ballot.
  • 1:35 - 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 - 2:02
    Just make a plan.
  • 2:02 - 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
