If you haven’t yet registered to vote, get it off your to-do list now.
Today is National Voter Registration Day, and thousands of local, state and national organizations have mobilized to make sure millions of people don’t miss the chance to cast their vote in this year’s elections.
Six million people didn’t vote in the 2008 elections because they either did not know how to register or because they missed the voter registration deadline.
Royal Oak residents have until Oct. 9 to register at Royal Oak City Hall, any Secretary of State office or by mail. In order to vote, you must:
- be 18 years or older on or before election day
- be a citizen of the U.S.
- have lived in Michigan for at least 30 days
- be registered on or before the close of registration
Additional information about voting in the City of Royal Oak is available on the city's website or by calling the Royal Oak City Clerk's office at 248-246-3000. For more information about voting in Michigan, visit the Michigan Voter Information Center.
