Monday is the deadline to register to vote for the 56 local elections in Michigan this August.   

Elections range from local primaries to school boards to city council votes.

The Michigan Secretary of State is urging Michiganders to get out to vote in their local elections.

Secretary of State spokesman Fred Woodhams says local elections often affect voters most directly.

“These are local elections where typically unfortunately very few people participate.” says Woodhams, “Those who do vote do have a big say in who will be leading their local community over the next few years.”

Residents can go to their county or local clerk's office or a Secretary of State office to register.
