Don't Miss Your Chance to Vote - Cast Your Ballot TODAY
Support TRU's work to improve Detroit Transit!
You're a busy person, Supporter, but you know this election is extremely important.
To make sure you can VOTE YES for REGIONAL TRANSIT and cast other essential votes without spending hours waiting in line, consider an absentee vote.
Anyone who is 60 or older or believes they may be out of town on election day may vote absentee. And no one checks up on your reason.
Recognizing Detroit's long ballot and the importance of voting, Detroit is offering five different absentee voting locations operating Monday-Friday from 9am-4pm for the next 3 weeks:
- Rosa Parks Transit Center, 360 Michigan Avenue
- Wayne County Community College, Northwest Campus, 8200 W. Outer Drive
- Wayne County Community College, Eastern Campus, 5901 Conner
- Patton Recreation Center, 2301 Woodmere St
- Department of Elections, 2978 W. Grand Blvd. (from 8am until 5pm)
So go vote today!
And remember, some of the most important decisions are at the bottom of the ballot! Our friends at MOSES recommend: "Vote your ballot from bottom to top. The end of the ballot is the non-partisan portion which directly impacts your livelihood, your children, and your family."
If you prefer to vote on election day, take a few minutes now to think about when you'll vote. Make a plan. First thing in the morning? On your lunch break? And think about how you'll handle it if there is a long line. Will you have time to wait? Planning out when and how you'll cast your ballot makes it more likely that you won't let anything get in your way!
Another important tip: Check exactly what will be on your ballot, print it out, make your decisions and bring it with you as your own personal cheat sheet! No need to try to keep it all in your head, especially with such a long ballot.
Lastly, bring friends with you! Make voting into a party and bring your kids or your friends along with you. Can you make sure 10 other people also vote?
This election, as always, every vote is essential. Make yours count!
