Below is some general information about Tuesday’s mid-term general election.
Local voters are reminded that in addition to Chelsea Board of Education and additional candidates, there are also ballot proposals. Be sure to check both sides of your ballot.
The polls will be open statewide on Tuesday, Nov. 6 from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Check your registration status at the Michigan Voter Information Center at https://webapps.sos.state.mi.us/MVIC/.
You also can view your sample ballot as well as find your polling location and track your absentee ballot.
A list of candidates can be found online.
A specially equipped voting station is available at each polling location for use by voters with disabilities.
Election officials are expecting voter turnout to exceed levels ordinarily seen in mid-term elections.
Michigan voters also are reminded there is no straight ticket voting option available on the ballot for this election. Instead, voters must select a candidate (or candidates if the ballot instructions allow) for each race in which they wish to cast a vote.
Voters will be asked to provide identification when they visit the polls on Election Day.
They will be asked to present valid photo ID, such as a Michigan driver’s license or identification card.
Anyone who does not have an acceptable form of photo ID or failed to bring it with them to the polls still may vote. The person will be required to sign a brief affidavit stating that he or she is not in possession of photo ID. The ballot will be included with all others and counted on Election Day.
