If you haven’t yet registered to vote, get it off your to-do list now.
With this year's ballot filled with local, state, and national races, don’t miss the chance to cast your vote in the Nov. 6 election.
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.
The voter registration deadline for Michigan is Oct. 9.
Here’s information on how you can register in Dexter in time for the Nov. 6 elections:
- Head to the Scio Township clerk's office, 827 N. Zeeb Road, to fill out a voter registration application. Residents of Webster Township can fill out an application at the Webster Township clerk's offfice, 5665 Webster Church Road.
- Residents of Lima Township can fill out at an application with the Lima Township clerk at 12172 Jackson Road. Residents of Dexter Township can request an application at 6880 Dexter-Pinckney Road.
- To find out if you are already registered, visit the Michigan Secretary of State's website.

Remember: A valid driver's license or state ID must be shown in many cases when registering to vote. If you don't have either, check with the location beforehand to see if other forms of identification are acceptible.
Voter registration cards generally take two weeks to arrive by mail. When you get yours, don't forget to go out and vote Nov. 6!
