Proposal 2 gives voters the flexibility to cast their vote 9-days early in all elections and for additional days and hours beyond what the constitution required.

All Michigan voters now have the right to vote early in every statewide and federal election. In those elections, early voting must be offered for at least nine consecutive days, beginning on the second Saturday before the election and ending on the Sunday before the election, for at least eight hours a day.

The Dexter Township 9- Day Early Voting will be held at Sylvan Township. Please call me at Dexter Township for directions or voting hours.
