What to Expect on Election DayDouble-check your Precinct Location:  Before you leave the house, visit mi.gov/vote to make sure you’re going to the right location.
What not to Wear:  Before you leave home, make sure you are not bringing any political material into the precinct, including political hats, shirts, masks, or brochures. This is considered campaigning and is illegal within 100 feet of the precinct location.
Social Distance: When you arrive at the precinct, you may have to wait in a line. Keep your distance from others and we highly encourage you to wear a mask.
Application to Vote: Your first task is to complete the application to vote. This is one of the checks and balances we have on election day. Fill out the information requested.
Present your Photo ID:  Hand your completed application to vote and your photo ID to the election worker. If you do not have a photo ID, you’ll sign the affidavit on the back of the application to vote. The election worker will verify your information matches the details in the e-pollbook. Once verified successfully, you’ll be issued a ballot. Fill out your Ballot. Bring your ballot to a voting booth to vote in private. Keep your ballot in the secrecy sleeve.
Cast your Ballot: Bring your ballot to the election worker at the tabulator. They will verify your ballot number matches the number on the application to vote. Once verified, they will remove the stub that contains the ballot number, making your ballot anonymous. You’ll then insert your ballot into the tabulator.
