Voters Reminded To Participate In Michigan Presidential Primary March 10th
Friday, February 28, 2020

Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson today reminded voters of the upcoming presidential primary election Tuesday, March 10th.

There is no political party registration requirement and any Michigan registered voter can participate in the presidential primary. At the polling place and on the absentee ballot application, voters will be asked to select a presidential primary ballot for either the Democratic or Republican parties that also may contain local election items. Voters who do not wish to participate in the presidential primary may request a ballot that contains only local items, if there are local items on the ballot.

Citizens may register to vote up until 8 p.m. on Election Day. If a resident isn’t registered, or needs to update their address, they may do so by appearing in person at their city or township clerk’s office and providing proof of residency.

All voters can visit the Michigan Voter Information Center at Michigan.gov/Vote to check their registration status, find out how to register and be able to vote on March 10th, view the candidates and questions that will be on their ballot, get a map to their polling place and other helpful information.

Polls are open 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Anyone in line at 8 p.m. will be allowed to vote. Additional information regarding Michigan’s presidential primary can be found at Michigan.gov/Elections. Voter Assist Terminals will be available for voter with disabilities and any other voters who wish to use them.
