GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — In Michigan, Tuesday is the last day to register to vote in the November elections.
24 Hour News 8 spoke with Ottawa County Clerk Justin Roebuck about the midterm elections and how to register to vote.
There are a couple of ways to register. One way is to go to a Secretary of State branch office or county, township or city clerk’s office. Residents can also mail in paperwork as long as it is postmarked on Tuesday.

“I think it’s important, it’s very simple to do. It’s a quick form, it’s an easy process, it gets you in the system and you are able to have your voice heard,” said Roebuck.
Roebuck said he expects Ottawa County to have a big turnout on Tuesday, Nov. 6. Usually, Ottawa County has a 60 to 65 percent turnout during the midterms, but this year they expect about 70 percent of people to vote.
Also, the county has had an uptick of voters register this year — about 15,000 new voters registered in 2018.
