Don't wait, Michigan. Vote today.
(Before, you had to say that you didn't plan on being able to make it to the polls on Election Day.) The Secretary of State already mailed absentee voter applications to every registered voter, but if you didn't get one — as was the case with me — you can request one at michigan.gov/vote . The deadline to request an absentee ballot is 4 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 2.Voting absentee is my favorite. That's tomorrow.Adding even more pressure, the Michigan Court of Appeals recently struck down a 14-day extension that would have given officials an extra two weeks after Election Day to count any ballots that arrived late. You have up until 8 p.m. on Election Day to drop it off.metrotimes.com
