The voter registration drives are scheduled for:

Monday, March 16, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Atrium at the Buell Management Building at Lawrence Tech University, 21000 W. Ten Mile Road, Southfield

Friday, March 20, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., in the B Building at Oakland Community College’s Royal Oak campus, 739 S. Washington Ave., Royal Oak

Monday, March 23, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., in Woodland Hall South at Oakland Community College’s Highland Lakes campus, 7350 Cooley Lake Road, Waterford

Michigan residents who will be 18 or older by the next Election Day can register to vote. A valid steele lindbloom addriver’s license or other state-issued ID is preferred, but not required, to register to vote.

Citizens must be registered by April 6, 2015 in order to vote in the statewide special election being held on May 5, 2015.

“It’s best for people to register to vote in person with a state-issued ID, if possible,” Brown said. “If you don’t register to vote in person, then you are required to vote in person the first time. A student who is away at college, for example, wouldn’t be able to vote by absentee ballot if he or she doesn’t register in person. I want to do my part to make sure it as easy as possible for all eligible Oakland County residents to cast their ballots.”
