Voter Registration Information

You can use this form to register to vote in Michigan or to change your name or address on your voter registration.

To register to vote in Michigan you must be:

  • A resident of Michigan and the city or township where you are applying to register to vote.
  • A citizen of the United States of America.
  • At least 18 years of age (by election day). You may register 6 months before you turn 18, but may not vote until you have turned 18.
  • Not serving a sentence in jail or prison.

Voter Registration Application

You may mail your application to Township Hall, or deliver your application in person. If you are registering to vote in Michigan for the first time, you must appear in person to vote in the first election in which you choose to participate. This requirement does not apply if you personally hand deliver your application to the Clerk’s office. This requirement also does not apply if you are 60 years of age or older, are disabled, or are eligible to vote under the federal Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act.

Absentee Ballot Application

A registered voter may obtain an absentee ballot if they are:

  • age 60 or older
  • unable to vote without assistance at the polls
  • expecting to be out of town on election day
  • in jail awaiting arraignment or trial
  • unable to attend the polls due to religious reasons
  • appointed to work as an election inspector in a precinct other than your own

Photo ID Requirement

Michigan law requires that ALL voters show a picture ID. Even if election workers recognize the voter, ID is required. If the voter has no ID, or forgot to bring it to the polls, the voter must sign a brief form stating that they are not in possession of identification, and their votes are included with all others and counted on Election Day.

Picture IDs must be current and must include the person’s photo and name. They do not need to include an address.

Acceptable forms of photo ID are:

  • Driver’s license or personal identification card
  • Federal or state government-issued photo identification
  • U.S. passport
  • Military ID with photo
  • Student identification with photo from a high school or accredited institution of higher learning
  • Tribal identification card with photo
