LANSING—Sen. Phil Pavlov on Thursday reminded area residents that the deadline to register to vote for the November general election is quickly approaching.
“This Monday, October 6 is the deadline for registering to vote, and I encourage all citizens to make sure they are registered,” said Pavlov, R-St. Clair Township. “Free elections are foundational to our freedom and our nation’s success. We should not take our constitutional right to vote for granted.”
