From moi:

I filled out the app, mailed it DT. A ballot appeared in my mailbox within two days (I don't check my USPS mail daily). Wow, vote at home! No lines, no seniors re-asking, "what's your name again?" (No I Voted sticker, though.) This allowed me to look up various candidates' positions and carefully evaluate the issues...oh, heck, I just voted for the grrlls' names.

Get a load of the Saturday polling at City Hall on 11/1. Sounds like a party!

The assn of Michigan county clerks decided to cross-deputize each other, which means that an 18yo attending school in Ann Arbor doesn't have to travel to Kent County to vote. (State law requires that a first-time voter appear in person. They're working to fix that.)

As a reminder, you can walk up to the city clerk's counter (2nd floor of 300 N. Monroe) and vote during business hours.

And this Saturday 8 am - 2 pm. And Monday 8 am - 4 pm.

You can take your time, avoid waiting in line. (If I were City, I'd offer some temporary voter 15 minute parking slots.)

Residents of other munis, please check with your own city hall/twp office. Pretty sure that counter voting is available anyplace there's a clerk.

Feels really good to have gotten 'er done already. I recommend it!
