If registering in person within the 14 days leading up to the election, residents must provide proof of residency.

Local Armed Forces Recruitment Offices
If you would like to register by mail, you may download, print and mail a Michigan Voter Registration Application to your local Clerk’s Office. However, if you register by mail, and you are a first time voter who plans on voting absentee, you will need to verify your registration by visiting the Clerk's Office before you request an Absent Voter Ballot to have an official verify your registration.

If you register in person, you have the option of requesting an Absent Voter Ballot prior to an election or voting on Election Day at the polling location you are registered to vote at. The key rule to remember is that the first time you vote, an official must have witnessed your signature to validate your registration to vote.

In order to vote, you must complete a Voter Registration Application 30 days before the date of the election you wish to cast your vote. You are also required to show a photo ID or sign an affidavit.

Confirming Your Registration
You can check you voter registration status on the web. After you have registered to vote at either a secretary of state office or your local Clerk’s Office, a voter ID card will be mailed to your registered address. This voter ID card serves as a voter’s reference guide in regard to your voting precinct, the location in which you would vote at, school district, and other helpful information. Should you not receive your voter ID card in the mail, contact the Clerk’s Office and request that another one be sent. You are welcome to come to the Clerk’s Office to pick it up.

Updating Your Name and Address
If you have moved to a different address, changed your name, or need to make any corrections to your registration file, you can update your voter registration in person at the location where you can register, or by mailing in a Michigan Change of Address / Voter Registration Form or by resubmitting a Michigan Voter Registration Application.

Michigan law requires that you use the same name and address for both your driver’s license and your voter registration, so if you change one, the data in the system will automatically change the other. You may update your voter registration by mail or at any of the locations listed above.
