At the end of May, Lansing Clerk Chris Swope began allowing the public to try out new voting equipment and register to vote at community events. The hands-on voting equipment demonstrations will continue to be offered at community events throughout the summer.

Event attendees can try out the new equipment, complete absentee voter applications, register to vote and have their questions about elections answered. To make the events more family friendly, all ages can cast a vote on their favorite local mascot and ice cream flavor.

“This is an important year for the state of Michigan and Lansing, as we have gubernatorial, secretary of state, attorney general, congressional and a variety of local elections,” said Swope. “We want to encourage more participation in our electoral process. In order to do so, the residents of Lansing must register to vote and know their voting rights. We at the city clerk’s office are coming to your neighborhoods to make that process as convenient as possible for you.”

Individual volunteers, as well as volunteers from organizations including the Lansing Area League of Women Voters, A. Philip Randolph Institute and the Labor Council for Latin American Advancement have been instrumental in helping to support the community events.

Appearances will be made at events such as the 2018 Pride Festival, Lansing BeerFest, Juneteenth Celebration, Concerts in the Park and more.

In addition to demonstrations for the voting equipment, the Lansing clerk’s office’s orange tent will be popping up at community events this summer to help register voters.

The voter registration deadline for the August primary election is July 9.
