DETROIT, August 15, 2012 – Marygrove College is among four Southeast Michigan colleges and universities to partner with TurboVote, a national service which aims to make voting as convenient as renting a Netflix DVD.

Marygrove joins the University of Michigan-Dearborn, Wayne State University and Eastern Michigan University in offering the online voting service to students.

TurboVote simplifies the process so that voters can focus on the candidates and important ballot questions. Here’s how it works.

1.         When voters sign up at TurboVote.org, the system checks their registration status.

2.         Voters can then request that a pre-filled voter-registration form or vote-by-mail application be sent to them in the mail. The form is delivered with a stamped, pre-addressed envelope, so it’s easy to sign and drop in the mail.

3.         When local election authorities receive the vote-by-mail application, they send the voter a mail-in ballot for the upcoming election.

TurboVote works for every election – special, primary or general, from school board to federal. And for every election, TurboVote sends text message and email reminders to users who have signed up for the service to ensure that they never miss another deadline. TurboVote also offers reminders to users who have signed up for the service and choose to vote in person at their polling places.
