(OPEN):
THIS YEAR, THERE ARE SEVERAL CHANGES TO HOW MICHIGANDERS CAN CAST THEIR BALLOT.  AND, LISA DEDDEN COOPER--OF "A-A-R-P MICHIGAN"--WANTS VOTERS TO KNOW ABOUT ALL OF THEIR OPTIONS...

(COOPER):
"
VOTING ABSENTEE HAS ALREADY PROVEN TO BE A POPULAR CHOICE FOR MICHIGAN.  AND, THOSE 50-AND-UP ARE HOLDING TRUE TO THEIR REPUTATION AS RELIABLE VOTERS.  MICHIGANDERS HAVE THREE SAFE OPTIONS: VOTE FROM HOME; VOTE IN-PERSON, AT THEIR POLLING-PLACE, ON ELECTION DAY; OR GO TO THEIR LOCAL CLERK'S OFFICE EARLY, AND CAST AN ABSENTEE BALLOT THERE.  MICHIGAN HAS 'NO REASON' ABSENTEE-VOTING--WHICH MEANS THAT ANY REGISTERED VOTER CAN REQUEST AN ABSENTEE BALLOT.  THREE-MILLION ABSENTEE BALLOTS HAVE ALREADY BEEN REQUESTED IN MICHIGAN--AND ONE-POINT-THREE-MILLION HAVE BEEN RETURNED.  VOTERS AGE-50-PLUS HAVE RETURNED ABSENTEE BALLOTS WITH A 55-PERCENT RATE, SO FAR."
