Register to vote at Ann Arbor YMCA with League of Women Voters on Sept. 15, 20

By Meredith Bruckner - Community News Producer

ANN ARBOR - The Ann Arbor YMCA and the League of Women Voters are teaming up to register voters ahead of Election Day on Nov. 6.

Voters must register by Oct. 9 in order to be eligible to vote.

The events will be held at the Y at 400 W Washington St. on:

  • Saturday, Sept. 15, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.
  • Thursday, Sept. 20, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Participants can either register to vote or learn how to vote absentee if they are registered elsewhere. The Y will also be providing material on ballot box issues.

"Nonprofits like the Y reach people who are typically underrepresented in the political process -- young people, lower-income individuals, and ethnic and racial minorities -- and historically participate at lower rates." - Ann Arbor YMCA

Experienced volunteers from the League of Women Voters will be onsite to assist participants in filling out a voter registration form and to answer questions. They will hand-deliver all forms to the City Clerk.

The events are nonpartisan. They are designed to encourage a higher voter turnout.
