Registering to vote is more important now than ever before. With a pandemic, protests, and general chaos, restoring our democracy is one of the most important goals we should have with the Presidential Election in November. 

If you haven’t registered to vote, there is still time! The Michigan Secretary of State has made a simple process to register. Click here to access the page where you can register to vote, or to check your registration status. 

If you haven’t registered to vote, the Michigan Secretary of State has made the process easy. With mail-in ballots an option, voters across Michigan will be able to safely vote from the comforts of their own homes. If you haven’t received a mail-in ballot already, you’re welcome to request one here.

However, if you’d rather brave the outdoors but don’t know where your polling place is, there’s an easy solution. To find your polling place, head to this page of the Secretary of State’s website. 

Voting does matter. Making sure your voice is heard is fundamental to our democracy. But there is another incentive for voting this year. The City of Ann Arbor held a contest earlier this year to change the famous “I Voted” stickers. 

This contest was held between January 31 and June 15. Each submission fell into one of three divisions;  K-6 division, Grade 7-12 division, and the Citywide division. These were the final selections from the contest:

Congratulations to all the selected artists. And excellent work from all contest participants. The only way to get your hands on these amazing stickers is to get out there in November and vote. So register and make your voice heard!
