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.
