Around Town: Registering to vote; November Absentee Ballots; Paint Dexter

Registering to Vote

If you have recently moved to Dexter, or are planning to move out prior to the November Election, please make sure to update your voter registration as soon as possible. We have heard that appointments for the Secretary of State are being scheduled out into December 2020. Typically voter registration is updated when the driver’s license is updated. To easily update your registration (and in many cases your driver’s license since the two databases are connected) you can visit the City Office at 8123 Main, 2nd Floor or the local clerk’s office in your new community. At the City of Dexter, no appointment is necessary – the hours are 9 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday. Please contact the City Clerk at 734-580-2234 with any questions.

November Absentee Ballots

Absentee ballots for the November General Election are anticipated to be mailed the week of September 21st. If you have already submitted an absentee ballot application form for November (which was included along with both the March and August ballot applications), then you do not need to submit another form.

If you would like an absentee ballot for the November Election, and you have not yet submitted an absentee ballot application form, please do so as soon as possible.

Paint Dexter Plein Air Festival

Artists participating in the 2020 Paint Dexter Plein Air Festival will be in and around Dexter from Monday, August 17th through Friday, August 21st. Paintings created during the week, along with paintings created in previous Paint Dexter Festivals, will be available for sale online through the Arts Alliance’s Creative Washtenaw Marketplace starting the week of August 24th.

We want to thank patrons and previous year sponsors for their support of the Festival. We hope to be able to return to our usual in person sale in 2021.
