According to a release, Michigan Secretary of State Ruth Johnson says.“we’re launching our 3,000-mile 2018 Voter Registration Drive on Tuesday, Sept. 4th at Oakland Community College’s Auburn Hills campus, and we’ll be traveling statewide from there. Students are encouraged to register to vote, ask questions about services and take care of any Secretary of State business they might have, right on campus.”
The Mobile Office will be at Western Michigan University on at the flagpoles at Center Campus. This mobile effort is in addition to postcards sent to all residents on their 18th birthday reminding them to register to vote, and asking customers when they come in for driver's licenses and ID.
