(WNDU) - We’re less than two weeks away from the midterm elections, which means it’s time to make sure you are registered to vote.

If you live in Michigan and you’re still not registered to vote in this upcoming election, you can register to vote and vote in person up until and on Election Day, which is Nov. 8, at your city or township clerk’s office.

You’re asked to register and vote early if you can, but you must be in your city or township clerk’s office by 8 p.m. on Election Day to register and vote in the election.

To find your local city or township clerk, click here. You’ll need to bring your proof of eligibility and residency.

Proof of eligibility:

To be eligible to register to vote you must be:

  • A Michigan resident (at the time you register) and a resident of your city or township for at least 30 days (when you vote)
  • A United States citizen
  • At least 18 years of age (when you vote)
  • Not currently serving a sentence in jail or prison
