About This State
Michigan! You’re one of the states that will decide who gets to be president. You also have an extremely important Senate race this year, and you're shaped like a mitten. The trifecta! All important reasons to get to the polls in one of the many great cars you're known to produce. Here's all the info you need to vote this year.Register To Vote
Due to the passage of the statewide ballot proposal 18-3, all eligible and registered voters in Michigan may now request an absent voter ballot without providing a reason.
A judge recently ruled that Michigan mail ballots postmarked by Nov. 2nd must be accepted if they are received within 14 days of the election.
Why Is This State Special
Michigan is the battleground state that Trump won by only 10,704 votes, the smallest margin in 2016. After the 2016 loss, organizers stepped up their efforts, delivering significant 2018 victories, like winning the governorship and seven other Republican seats. This organizing work positions Michigan as one of the best opportunities to flip a state for Democrats in 2020.ROAD TO WIN

Get Mitch or Die Trying
Mad that the Senate isn't doing anything except passing a corporate tax cut, even in the amidst of a pandemic? Blame the self-described "Grim Reaper" of progress, Mitch McConnell. With 18% approval in his home state, he probably shouldn't be leading the country. Time to take the gavel away.
