Register to Vote
State Requirement
Michigan Election Law requires that you register to voter 30 days prior to an election to be eligible to vote in that election.

How to Register
To register you may:
  • Go to any Secretary of State Branch office and advise them you want to register to vote. They will provide you with a form to sign, which will be forwarded to your local clerk’s office.
  • Come to City Hall and request a Voter Registration Application. You may complete the application at any time and have an employee of the city witness your signature to verify your identity.
  • Go the Secretary of State’s website and complete, print, and mail the Michigan Voter Registration Application to the City Clerk’s Office.

Absentee Voting
  • All information regarding absentee voting eligibility and registration can be acquired by following this link to the Michigan Secretary of State's website
  • Applications for absentee voting can be picked up at City Hall, or printed out here.
  • Once you have filled out your application it must be returned by mail, or in person, to the City Clerks office located in City Hall.

Additional Requirements

If you choose to register online and have not voted in person in Michigan before, you will be required to vote in person the first time. You will not be able to get an absentee ballot until that first time vote in person requirement is met.

If you are or have a college aged student who is going away to school, it is recommended that the student register in person at the Secretary of State or City Hall to ensure his/her eligibility for an absentee ballot.

As a reminder, students who go away to school should know that if he/she chooses to register to vote at school, his/her driver’s license address will be changed to the college location and the student will be eligible to vote only in the city where the student resides.
