Most everyone who's qualified to vote in Michigan is registered to vote now.
The Secretary of State's officer reports Monday that 95.5% of the voting age population is registered to vote in the November 2 election. That amounts to 7.28 million registered voters. The Secretary of State's office say that is higher than the number of people registered in 2006, Michigan's last gubernatorial year election. 7.18 million people were registered to vote then.
Of course, you still have to go and vote.
The Secretary of State's Office wants to remind residents of the voter identification requirement.
They will be asked to present photo ID at the polls, such as a Michigan driver's license or identification card.
Voters who don't have a Michigan driver's license or identification card can show the following forms of photo ID, as long as they are current:
- Driver's license or personal identification card issued by another state
- Federal or state government-issued photo identification
- U.S. passport
- Military identification card with photo
- Student identification with photo from a high school or an accredited institution of higher education, such as a college or university
- Tribal identification card with photo.
Anyone who does not have an acceptable form of photo ID or failed to bring it with them to the polls can still vote. They will sign a brief affidavit stating that they're not in possession of a photo ID. Their ballots will be included with all others and counted on Election Day.
The deadline to register to vote was October 4th.
