My City Votes
The Voters Ed Fund is working hand-in-hand with local clerks, mayors, and other trusted community leaders across the state to make sure that voters, especially those in underrepresented communities, know their voting options and have confidence in local and state election systems.
The Voters Ed Fund is increasing voters’ awareness of early voting options including clerk office hours and dropboxes, and empowering voters with accurate and timely information so they can make sure their vote is counted.
My City Votes is a strategic collaboration with city officials and community partners to maximize voter education of key dates and deadlines, and expanded voting services before election day, prioritizing voters with the lowest propensity to vote.
The Voters Ed Fund has identified multiple municipalities with a combined population of approximately 233,000 registered voters.
Jurisdictions were selected based on whether the community votes below the average turnout rate of Michigan, above average populations of historically disenfranchised voting groups, and higher rates of poverty. Approximately 40,000 registered voters in these communities qualify as most at risk for not voting in the 2022 election cycle.
