In an effort to help more people register to vote, the East Lansing City Clerk's Office will have extended hours leading up to the March 10 presidential primary election.
Those with a valid state ID can register to vote online at mi.gov/vote. Citizens can also register at the clerk's office from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m as during the extended hours.
The clerk's office will be open until 8 p.m. Feb. 25 and 27 and March 3 and 5. The office will be open the weekend before the election, March 7 and 8 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
March 6 is the last day residents can register for an absentee voter ballot to be mailed. They can pick up absentee ballots from the clerk's desk until 4 p.m. March 9 is the deadline for a registered voter to apply for an absentee ballot. Those who are already registered can fill out an absentee ballot in person at the clerk's desk on election day. Voters do not need a reason to apply for an absentee ballot and can register to vote on the day of the election.
