Election Day! The polls are open from 7am until 8pm local time. If you need to register or to update your registration, you can do so at your city or township clerk’s office until 8pm. Once registered, you can vote by absentee ballot at your clerk’s office. Absentee ballots must be received by your city or township clerk by 8pm (unless you are a military or overseas voter, in which case your ballot must be postmarked by this date).
