LANSING, Mich. -

Tuesday is the last day to register to vote in time for the Nov. 6th general election.

To register, applicants must be at least 18 years old by Election Day and be U.S. citizens.

Applicants must also be residents of Michigan and of the city or township in which they wish to register.

Voters may register by mail, at their county, city or township clerk’s office, or by visiting any Secretary of State office.
