What news sources are the least biased? A simplified assessment.
To ensure that your ballot is counted, go to BallotPower.org to get your clerk’s address, official dropbox location, and track your ballot in just 2 clicks. This database is sometimes a few days behind. You can also verify this information at https://mvic.sos.state.mi.us/Voter/Index. Or vote in-person Election Day.
If you have moved in the last 30 days, you will need to re-register. You can update your information through this online voter registration page before October 19 or go to your city or township clerk. If you have moved and have not changed your address for voting, you will need to do that.
If you have received your absentee ballot and then decided to vote in person on election day, contact your clerk for instructions. If you need assistance with your absentee ballot, read the specific instructions regarding that.
