Election Day is now just two weeks away and Monday was the last day for Michiganders to register to vote.

Any eligible Michigan voter can register online or by mail

If you are not registered by the end of Monday, you can still register in-person at your city or township clerk's office through Election Day. When you register in-person, you can also request to vote early, fill out your ballot, and return it all in one visit.

"We’re seeing an incredible amount of enthusiasm from Michiganders excited to participate in our democracy," Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson said in a statement. "Voters have more options than ever before for how to register and cast their ballot, and that’s why we’ve been working around the clock to ensure citizens understand those options and can exercise their rights in the way that works best for them.”

The Secretary of State's Office is also urging Michiganders with absentee ballots to return them by mail today at the latest to be sure the ballot is received in a timely manner. Otherwise, you can return your absentee ballot in-person to your clerk's office or a drop box, which you can find under your voter information.

So far, over one million Michiganders have successfully voted early, and over 2.8 million have requested absentee ballots.
