Four Things You CAN and Can NOT Do At The Michigan Polls Tomorrow
Let's end this dumpster fire of an election on a high note and follow all the rules tomorrow, mmmkay?
It's not worth having your vote compromised, so here are some things you need to know about going to the polls in Michigan tomorrow:
1. You can NOT take a ballot selfie.
A federal judge in Grand Rapids had signed an injunction, suspending Michigan's ban on ballot selfies, but that was set aside in an order that came down last week.
The challenge to it isn't dead in the water, but for tomorrow's purpose, you can't take a ballot selfie. Take a selfie outside of the polls with your sticker, but not while you're voting. Don't compromise your vote, it's not worth it.
2. You CAN see your ballot beforehand.
It's a long ballot - there's federal, state, county and local races on it. Be prepared. If you want to see your ballot before you vote, you can do so HERE.
3. You CAN vote straight ticket.
That option has been preserved here in the great state of Michigan, and there's even ways to do it without doing it. You can always fill in the "Democrats" or "Republicans" option, or you can fill in that option and ALSO mark your ballot for candidates outside the party.
The ballot will also have non-partisan candidates for school board, judicial seats, etc.
4. You can NOT wear candidate clothing or buttons.
Leave your "I'm With Her" shirt or "Make America Great Again" hat at home. You can't wear or display candidate items within 100 feet of a polling place. You may be asked to cover them up or remove them all together. Don't risk it; your vote is enough.
Got it? Good. Now, let's get out there and VOTE!
