Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sample ballots are available through the Michigan Secretary of State website, and additional information and resources can be found on the MHA Election 2022 webpage.

Those who would like to ensure they are properly registered or need to verify their precinct number may click on “Your Voter Information” on the Michigan Secretary of State website and complete the requested information. Under Michigan’s State Constitution citizens may register to vote up to and on Election Day at their local clerk’s office.

The 2022 gubernatorial and midterm elections are critical to Michigan’s healthcare future. In addition to choosing the next governor, secretary of state and attorney general of Michigan, voters across the state will decide political contests that impact the legislative and regulatory environments faced by hospitals and the patients they serve, including two Michigan Supreme Court seats and all seats in the U.S. House of Representatives, the Michigan House of Representatives and the Michigan Senate.

Three statewide ballot questions appear on this year’s ballot as well as local races. Voters should check both sides of the ballot to ensure all items are completed before submitting the ballot.

Members with questions should contact Sean Sorenson-Abbott at the MHA.
