Michigan is one of 36 states in which the governor’s seat is up for grabs. Voters will go to the polls Aug. 7 to cast ballots in the primary election for that race, as well as congressional and legislative offices.
A photo ID is required at the polls, and if you arrive without one, you must sign an affidavit before voting. For those who vote absentee, ballots must be received by 8 p.m. on election day.
As a nonpartisan organization, AARP does not endorse candidates but does ask them where they stand on issues that matter to voters 50-plus. AARP Michigan is posting videos showing candidates’ answers to such questions at facebook.com/aarp.michigan.
