Michigan: How to vote, where to vote and what’s on the ballot today.

Michigan, a battleground state where Republicans have clashed with Democrats over the 2020 election results and coronavirus restrictions, is holding its primary elections today.

The outcomes will be closely followed by both parties, which have continued to tie their electoral fortunes to the state.

Here is a refresher on the rules for voting and what’s at stake.

Michigan provides same-day voter registration, unlike many states that have early deadlines for participating in elections. Residents who meet the state’s eligibility requirements can register in person at their local clerk’s office until 8 p.m. Eastern time on Tuesday.

You don’t have to be registered with a political party to vote in a primary.

The state offers no-excuse absentee voting, but the deadline to request a mail-in ballot has passed.

Click here to look up your assigned place to vote. Absentee ballots must be returned to your designated drop box or by hand to your local clerk’s office by 8 p.m. Eastern time, which is also when the polls close for in-person voting.

Republicans will weigh in on a chaotic primary contest for governor, while Gov. Gretchen Whitmer will appear alone on the Democratic primary ballot.

Voters will also decide various intraparty races for Congress and the Michigan Legislature. Depending on where you live, you may have local elections too. Click here for your sample ballot.
