Are you registered to vote? If you want to have your say in the upcoming November 6 General Election, you must register to vote by October 9.

Residents in Indiana can register to vote online by texting ‘Indiana’ to 2VOTE (28683), or by visiting IndianaVoters.com, and can submit an application to register in person at their local county clerk’s office.

The Indiana Voters app also allows Hoosiers to confirm their voter registration, look up their polling place, get driving directions to their polling location, find out who’s on their ballot, track their absentee ballot application or provisional ballot information and contact local election officials.

In order to be eligible to register to vote, you must:

• be a citizen of the United States,

• be at least 18 years old by Election Day,

• have lived in your precinct for at least 30 days before the election; and

• not currently be imprisoned after being convicted of a crime.

Voters with questions can call the Hoosier Voter Hotline at 866-IN-1-VOTE.

Residents in Michigan can visit www.Michigan.gov/vote to find the address of their local clerk or obtain the mail-in voter registration application. First-time voters who register by mail must vote in person in their first election, unless they hand-deliver the application to their local clerk, are 60 years old or older, are disabled or are eligible to vote under the Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act.

If a voter is already registered but needs to change their address, they may be able to update their address online at www.ExpressSOS.com. To check their registration status, residents may visit the Michigan Voter Information Center at www.Michigan.gov/vote. They can see their sample ballot and find their polling place. Residents also can find information on absentee voting, Michigan’s voter identification requirement and how to use voting equipment. In addition, Secretary Johnson has put together a short video reminding residents where to find their voterinfo that can be viewed online.
