Voter registration deadline is Oct. 6

The last day to register to vote for the Nov. 4 general election is Oct. 6.

Ballots will include the presidential race, state House contests, local races and statewide and local proposals.

To register, people must be U.S. citizens and be at least 18 years old by election day. They must also be residents of Michigan and of the city or township in which they wish to register.

Voters may register in person or by mail. The mail-in form is on the Department of State web site at www.Michigan.gov/sos. Firsttime voters who register by mail must vote in person in their first election, unless they hand-deliver the application to their local clerk, are age 60 or older, are disabled or are overseas.

For information, visit www.Michigan.gov/vote.
