Voting registration deadline approaching

Apr 3, 2013

LANSING, MI (AP)--   Monday is the deadline to register to vote in the May 7 election. 

Michigan Secretary of State Ruth Johnson is urging all qualified residents to register by next week's deadline. No state or federal elections are scheduled for May, but some communities will have local elections in the second of four regularly scheduled elections held every year.

To register, applicants must be at least 18 years old by Election Day and be U.S. citizens and residents of Michigan.

People can register by mail or in person at their local clerk's office or at any Secretary of State office.
