Registering to vote This information is from the Michigan Secretary of State: Before you can vote in any election, you must be registered. To register to vote you must be: • A U.S. citizen • At least 18 years of age by election day • A resident of Michigan and the city or township where you are applying to register to vote.

Where to go You can register to vote for federal, state and local elections by mail; at your county, city or township clerk’s office; or by visiting any Secretary of State branch office. In addition, these state agencies offer voter regis­tration services to their clients: the Department of Human Services, the Department of

Community Health and the Department of Career Development. Military recruitment centers also provide voter reg­istration services.

When You must register at least 30 days before the elec­ tion. This gives the clerk time to process the forms and send you a Voter Identification Card. You must also re-register to vote whenever you move to a new city or township.

If you move Whenever you move to a new city or township, you must re-register to vote. If you move within a city or township, you must update your address. This can be handled through your local clerk, at a Secretary of State branch office or by mail.

CARE COMMUNITY ASSISTED LIVING

Care Community Recognized for Making a Commitment to Quality Care Community in Battle Creek is a recipient of the Michigan Center for Assisted Living’s (MCAL) Quality Standard Seals for levels of Best Practice. Care Community has been recognized at MCAL’s second level of the Quality Standard Seals. A multi-step application process took place in early 2010 to find homes committed to quality initiatives and improvement in their assisted living settings. Linda Lawther, president/CEO of MCAL, said “I visit many assisted living homes in Michigan on a regular basis. It is an honor to be able to recognize the ones who are proving their ability and their drive to be the very best.” In 2003, the MCAL Quality Standard Seals for Levels of Best Practice became an annual achievement opportunity for Michigan homes. Michigan’s process was based on the National Center for Assisted Living (NCAL) Quality First Principles for Performance Excellence. Michigan’s program is designed to encourage participants to move through each of three steps with a goal for greater quality and excellence each year. MCAL members applying for a level two seal develop a quality improvement program as well as have full staff commitment to the NCAL Quality First Pledge. Level two participants have also begun the basics of strategic planning. The program was developed in a way that encourages homes to step up at least one level each year with a three to four-year plan. Care Community is one of four homes in the state of Michigan receiving the level two seal in 2010. MCAL is a statewide association of Housing with Services Communities, Homes for the Aged, Adult Foster Care and Independent Senior Housing Providers in Michigan, promoting the highest quality of person centered care and leadership principals. MCAL is also a resource for consumer education and information. You may contact MCAL by calling 517.627.1561 or by email at lindalawther@michcal. com.
