In less than a week, Trenton voters will have an opportunity to cast their ballots in the Michigan presidential primary.
Because the primary will be conducted as a "closed" primary, voters must request a specific party's ballot at the polls. Voters do not have to be registered to a specific party to take part in the primary, but under Public Act 163 of 2011, they must indicate in writing whether they wish to vote a Republican or Democratic ballot. View sample ballots here: Republican Party click here, Democratic Party ballot click here.
Voters will not be required to select a political party ballot in writing for the August primary or November election.
In Trenton, polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 8 p.m. Feb. 28.
Find the location of your precinct using the interactive map above. If you do not know your precinct number, visit the Michigan Votes website or contact the city clerk's office at 734-675-8600.
Michigan voters are required to show photo ID, either a driver's license or state issued ID, at the polls. If you forget, or do not have an acceptable form of ID, you can still vote, but must sign a brief affidavit stating that you're not in possession of a photo ID.
