Voting registration changes

By  | 

MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - Monday is the last day to register to vote without an additional proof of residency. This is thanks to the major changes with Proposal Three on the November Ballot.

Another change from Proposal Three, if you haven’t registered to vote, you can still register at your local clerk’s office. You will still have to meet identity requirement such as a photo id and proof of residency. Other changes include no longer needing a reason to apply for an absentee ballot.

In the past, there was a registration deadline of 30 days. With the new proposal you can register right up to and on Election Day.

"We want people to know that they still have the ability to register. If they are new to town or they moved within the city, they can still make those changes within our office,” said Marquette City Clerk, Kris Hazeres.

Marquette's Primary Election takes place on August 6. Residents will be able to vote on city commissioners.
