Join us Monday, October 17 for a regional town hall conversation about voting rights and security for the November 8 elections.

Michigan’s Chief Elections Officer, Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, will be visiting Michigan college and university campuses to inform students and community members of their right to vote in the statewide general election on Tuesday, Nov. 8. Attorney General Dana Nessel will also participate.

The nonpartisan event at UM-Dearborn will focus on Michigan voting rights, ways to participate in elections, and election security, with an emphasis on options for student voters. The town hall will include a moderated panel discussion with Michigan’s Attorney General, Dana Nessel, and a local elections clerk.

Campus and community members will also have the opportunity to submit questions to be answered during the town hall.

The location will be 1030 CB (CASL Building), just south of the Student Center.

Visitor parking is available on the 3rd Floor of the Monteith Parking Structure (MPS) next to the Campus Support Services Building. Limited visitor parking is also available across from the University Center (in portions of Lot E5) and the Field House (in portions of Lot F).

You may register to vote on-site!

This event is free and open to the public.
