Primary Day reminders before you vote

LANSING, Mich (WLNS) – It’s Primary Election Day in Michigan!

Over the course of the day the polls will open and voters will be making important decisions for their local communities.

Whether that’s a “yes” or a “no” on a millage or choosing what leadership they’d like to see move-on to the November general election.

Before you leave for your polling place we have a few reminders of what you’ll need to bring and what you’ll want to leave at home.

Polls will open today at 7 a.m. and they will close tonight at 8 p.m.

To make the process move as efficiently as possible bring a picture identification with you to the polls.

Here’s a list of accepted forms of identification:

  • Driver’s license or state IDs are accepted.
  • A U.S. passport
  • Military, school or tribal photo IDs.

If you misplaced your identification you can still vote but you must sign an affidavit to do so.

Remember that election-related materials are prohibited from the polls, which includes clothing, fliers, stickers and buttons.

Be sure to put your cellphone away because ballot selfies are also banned.
