Associated Students of Northern Michigan University (ASNMU) partnered with the Marquette City Clerk's office to set up a satellite clerk's office where individuals can register to vote, request and drop off a Marquette City absentee ballot and return Michigan voting applications. The office is located in room 1205 of the Northern Center. It is open now through Nov. 2 from 2-8 p.m. Mondays-Thursdays and 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Fridays.
The office is staffed by NMU students working part time, including ASNMU President Emma Drever.
“ASNMU is building its network through community collaborations and projects like this one,” said Drever. “ASNMU aims to provide avenues that increase voter registration in ways that meet the needs of all voters. There are many options for how you choose to vote, and there are many voting-related resources out there. I try to be a source of information by offering help. It is very important to vote at the local, state and national levels, and for your voice to be heard.”
The Marquette city clerk's office can be reached by phone at 906-228-0430.
