• Ward 3 – Precincts 1 & 2 voters should go to the Michigan League  (not East Quad).

• Ward 4 – Precinct 1 voters should go to the Michigan Union  (not South Quad).

Northwood Community Center will continue as the polling location for Ward 2 – Precinct 1.  Also, Ward 1 – Precincts 1 & 2 polling remains in the Michigan Union; and Ward 4 – Precinct 3 polling remains at the Coliseum, located at the corner of Fifth Avenue and Hill Street.

Individuals can verify registration, absentee ballot options, and authorized polling place on the Michigan Secretary of State website or on Publius at

Michigan voters are required to present valid photo identification at the polls on Election Day in order to vote. Students should take their Mcard with them to the polling location.
