The fire alarm blared through East Quad Residence Hall Wednesday night, forcing occupants outside. It turned out to be a false alarm, but it didn’t stop Voice Your Vote volunteers who had spent the past hour registering East Quad residents to vote. They continued their registration blitz on the crowded sidewalk.

There is nothing subtle about the persistence of registration volunteers. When going door-to-door, they routinely knock three times and wait for a response. If that doesn’t work, they’ll knock again, just to be sure the room is empty.

By going through the dorms or staking out the Diag, Voice Your Vote brings the registration process to the students. This often helps. because registering to vote can be tricky.

For example, if your residence has changed since you last voted, you need to let the government know. You also need to find your precinct for Election Day. If you don’t know your precinct, check out the map below. To find your polling place, see a list attached to this article at michigandaily.com.

Nov. 7 is inching closer. A week from today is the last day to register for the election. Several of the races this November are close. Your vote could make a difference.
