KNOW YOUR VOTING RIGHTS
Wednesday October 4 at 6:30 pm The Center 45 Neckel Ct. Milan MI
We welcome Margaret Leary, M.A., J.D., the Presentation Coordinator for the League of Women Voters of Washtenaw County. Milan's own City Clerk Lavonna Wenzel will also be in attendance to answer questions.
In November 2022, over 60% of MI voters approved a state constitutional amendment which gives voters many new and improved voting rights. These include the right to vote early in every statewide and federal election, to sign up to be a permanent mail voter with prepaid postage on ballots and applications, and to an enhanced tracking system for absentee ballots and applications. This presentation describes the new rights, and how to exercise them. Register (requested but not required) HERE.
