The Dearborn Heights Campus is hosting a voter registration drive, and the public is invited to attend.
The event will run Monday through Thursday from 5 to 7 p.m. each day through Jan. 30, 2024. (The building is closed and the drive canceled on any snow days.) The Dearborn-Dearborn Heights League of Women Voters is sponsoring the registration drive, and volunteers will assist those registering to vote.
To register to vote, a person must be at least 18 years of age, a U.S. citizen and a resident of Michigan. Those hoping to register should bring the required documents with them such as a Michigan driver’s license or state ID. See a full list of acceptable documents on the state website. Not sure if you are registered to vote? See if you are registered and learn more about voting on the Michigan Voter Information Center website.
The Dearborn Heights Campus, which includes the Michael Berry Career Center, is at 22568 Ann Arbor Trail, next to the intersection of Ann Arbor Trail and Warren Avenue. Those coming to the registration drive should enter through Door 20.
The next election in Michigan will be held on Feb. 27, 2024. In addition to being a presidential primary, the ballot will also contain a question asking voters to reapprove the district’s Operating Millage. This millage provides $41 million, or 16 percent of the district’s general fund budget. The money is used for everyday expenses, including staff, classroom materials, utility bills, busing, after school activities, and more.
Henry Ford College will also be asking to continue a millage used for operating costs on the Feb. 27 ballot.
Dearborn Schools is encouraging people to vote in the Feb. 27 election, even if they do not wish to participate in the presidential primary.
