If you want to help decide which candidates will make it to the general election in November, you'll have to make sure you're registered to vote by July 9.

Here's how to exercise the greatest right this country affords you:

Step 1: Go online and see if you are already registered at the appropriate address.

Step 2: If you're not, download a voter registration application, print it, fill it out, and mail it to your clerk's office (the address should be listed on the application). Or, register to vote in person at a Secretary of State branch.

If you're a first-time voter and mail in your application but want to vote absentee, you'll still likely have to show up in person to obtain your ballot. There are exceptions for disabled people and overseas military personnel.

Michigan's primary will be held on Aug. 7. Republicans and Democrats will be able to select their party's candidates in the governor's race and races for U.S. House and Senate and state House and Senate.
