Election News & Info from CivCity!


Voter Registration:
Oct. 11 Deadline Is Near!

 
Voting on Nov. 8 is crucial, but (duh!) you can't vote if you aren't registered. It's likely that someone in your circle of friends, family, colleagues & neighbors isn't registered yet. Please help us reach them before the Tuesday, Oct. 11 deadline! CLICK HERE FOR A VOTER REGISTRATION FORM.

CivCity's voter resource, AnnArborVotes.org, has more info. Check out The Basics page if you need details about registering, voting absentee, polling locations and more. And of course we've got loads of info about local candidates and ballot proposals, as well as upcoming election-related events.
