Busy ballots, new rules for March 10 primary; State Prop. 18-3 brings easier registration, absentee voting

GETTING READY–L’Anse Township Clerk Kristin Kahler will be conducting her first election with the Michigan primary on March 10. She is getting the word out that a proposition approved in 2018 makes same-day voter registation possible, and allows “no reason” absentee voting if people request and fill out an application. Kahler was appointed to fill the vacancy left by retiring Brian Jentoft.
