Voter Education

Why It Matters

The leaders we elect make decisions that affect our daily lives. Elections are our chance to stand up for what matters most to us and to have an impact on the issues that affect us, our communities, our families, and our future.

CitizenDetroit Candidate Forum in Partnership with LWV Detroit

What We Do

We host candidate debates and forums in Detroit, Hamtramck, and Highland Park. We also provide straightforward, nonpartisan information about candidates and ballot issues. Through printed voter guides and online resources such as our flagship online voter guide,, we equip voters with essential information about the election process in Michigan, including polling place hours and locations, ballot information, early or absentee voting rules, voter registration deadlines, ID requirements, and so much more.

Under normal circumstances we would provide voter education with face-to-face meetings and events. The pandemic, however, has forced us to provide virtual voter information online; an example of such is the following YouTube video link on Absentee Voting (produced by Get Out The Vote and the City of Southfield, MI).

For voter education regarding our candidate forums and candidate information, go to our Town Hall/Forums webpage.
