ABSENTEE VOTING--NEW RULES!
Because of the new voting rules voted into law in the 2018 election, every voter can vote absentee. In effect, voters in Michigan can vote by mail! Complete an absentee Voter Application and mail or deliver it to your township or city clerk. Your clerk will send you a regular ballot in the mail. Complete the ballot and mail or deliver it to your clerk, or bring it to the polls on election day.
Check your registration, download an Absentee Voter Application and check the location of your clerk on michigan.gov/vote.

Dowagiac Harvest Moon Festival
Hold Them Accountable!
"Should any political party attempt to abolish social security, unemployment insurance, and eliminate labor laws and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history. There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes you can do these things. Among them are...Texas oil millionaires and an occasional politician or business man from other areas. Their number is negligible and they are stupid."
--President Dwight D. Eisenhower,
November 8, 1954

1. You do NOT need a drivers license or photo ID to vote in Michigan.
If you don't have a photo ID, or don't have it with you, you can still vote a regular ballot. You will be required to sign your name on the back of your application, but you can vote if your name is in the poll book. If not in the poll book, you can vote a provisional ballot that may be verified later.
2. Felons can vote! If not serving a jail sentence, you can vote if registered.
3. You can take a list of candidates into the voting booth, but don't leave it. You can take a helper into the voting booth--tell the election workers.
4. If your ballot gets rejected, ask for a new one. Voting is not an easy process and the election workers are there to help. Ask for assistance if you need it!
5. If you're in line by 8 pm, you have a right to vote. Don't let anyone harass you during the voting process or while in line. If you feel your vote is being interfered with tell the election workers, they are there to help.
You will find links to websites and stories of interest on the local, state and national level.
If you're a political junkie, this is the page for you!
If you care about the next generation, Vote Democrat!!
