LANSING, MI (Toledo News Now) – Secretary of State Ruth Johnson announced Thursday a smart phone version of the state's Michigan Voter Information Center to provide convenient election information for voters.
"You can already access your voter registration information and see a sample ballot by going to www.Michigan.gov/vote," said Johnson, the state's chief elections officer. "This smart phone version of the website is designed to help you more easily view the same information while you're on the go."
The site is designed to work with most smart phone web browsers on a variety of mobile platforms. Visitors away from their computers can go to the website and choose a link that offers the mobile setup. From there they can access voter registration information, sample ballots, an election calendar, absentee voter information and instructions on how to use voting equipment. They can also find their local clerk's office and polling place.
A corresponding Quick Response code is available to allow people to bring up the site by scanning the code with their phone.
Johnson encouraged residents to check the website for information on upcoming elections. If residents have not yet registered for the Nov. 6 general election, they can do so at their local clerk's office or any Secretary of State office. The deadline to register for the Aug. 7 primary has already passed.
