FAQs

Who can register to vote in Michigan?

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 for at least 30 days before election day. 
  • A citizen of the United State of America
  • At least 18 years of age (by election day). 
  • Not serving a sentence in jail or prison.

Who qualifies for an absent voter ballot in Michigan?

Due to the passage of the statewide ballot proposal 18-3 in  November, all eligible and registered voters in Michigan may now request  an absent voter ballot without providing a reason.

How do I get an absent voter ballot?

Your request for an absent voter ballot must be in writing and can  be submitted to your city or township clerk. You must request an absent voter ballot by mailing the application, large print application,  a letter, a postcard, or a pre-printed application form obtained from  your local clerk's office. Requests to have an absent voter ballot  mailed to you must be received by your clerk no later than 5 p.m. the  Friday before the election.

Once your request is received by the local clerk, your signature on  the request will be checked against your voter registration record  before a ballot is issued. You must be a  registered voter to  receive an absent voter ballot. Requests for absent voter ballots are  processed immediately. Absent voter ballots may be issued to you at your  home address or any address outside of your city or township of  residence.

After receiving your absent voter ballot, you have until 8 p.m. on  election day to complete the ballot and return it to the clerk's office.  Your ballot will not be counted unless your signature is on the return envelope and matches your signature on file. If you received assistance  voting the ballot, then the signature of the person who helped you must  also be on the return envelope. Only you, a family member or person  residing in your household, a mail carrier, or election official is authorized to deliver your signed absent voter ballot to your clerk's  office.

How do I determine where I go to vote in Michigan?

The Michigan Voter Information Center can help you determine whether you are registered to vote, where you cast  your ballot on Election Day and where your local clerk's office is  located. If you are not registered, you can follow the step-by-step  instructions to register. You may also learn about voting equipment in  your precinct, the voter identification requirement, and what you need  to know if you would like to work at the polls on Election Day.

Registered Michigan voters who have moved within 60 days of the  election may still vote at their previous address if they did not  register to vote at their new address by the close of registration for  this election.
