In a 2020 study by the Knight Foundation, more than 1 in 4 unregistered voters reported not being registered because they didn’t know, they kept forgetting, they didn’t have time, were too busy, or recently moved.  Michigan 2-1-1 is excited to partner in Voter Engagement efforts and want to do our best to ensure Michigan citizens have the information needed to register to vote, cast a ballot and have your voices heard.
