Greetings from Michigan Realtors®! View the top 5 news and resources for the month of February:
1. 2016 Election Cycle: Realtor® Voter Registration
2016 is an important election year. It’s a Presidential year, and Congressional and State House campaigns are gearing up for the August Primary and the November General Election. Your local associations and Michigan RPAC will again be conducting candidate interviews and endorsing candidates that support Realtor® issues. Most importantly, before deciding who will win your vote, you must be registered to vote!
The Secretary of State’s website contains a wealth of information regarding registering to vote, polling sites, candidates running in your area, and absentee ballots. Please visit them at www.michigan.gov/sos. You can also register to vote by simply visiting any Secretary of State branch in Michigan. It is an easy and pain-free process!
So, you’ve recently moved and can’t recall if you registered to vote in your new neighborhood. To find out, visit the Michigan Voter Information center at www.michigan.gov/vote. This web site will tell you if you are in fact registered, and where to go to cast your ballot in August and November. It is also a very helpful web site to let homebuyers know of as well, especially if they are new to a particular area.
Statewide 90% of Realtors® are registered to vote. Let’s continue to make our voice heard in Lansing and in Washington D.C.!
