Depending on the state where you want to vote, you can either register online or by paper. Be sure to check if you are registered by going to http://bit.ly/uofmcheckreg.
If you are already registered and do not want to vote in person, remember to request an absentee ballot. If you are registered to vote in Michigan, download an absentee ballot request form at https://www.michigan.gov/sos/0,4670,7-127-1633_8716_8728-21037--,00.htm…;
