(LANSING, Mich.) -- Michigan Secretary of State Ruth Johnson reminded voters on Tuesday to vote in next month's primary election.
"Voting provides you an opportunity to make your voice heard not only in your community but throughout the state," said Johnson.
Polls will open at 7 a.m. on August 5, and stay open until 8 p.m. Voters will be able to vote in either the Republican or Democratic primary, but not both.
Voters that fall under certain categories also can receive an absentee ballot through August 4. Voters over the age of 60, physically unable to attend the polls, expecting to be out of town on Election Day, are in jail, unable to attend the polls due to religious reasons or who are appointed to work as an election inspector in a precinct outside of their home precinct can submit an application for an absentee ballot by mail by 2 p.m. Saturday or can pick one up in person at any local clerk's office.
