VOTER REGISTRATION
Any citizen of the United States who is 17.5 years of age and will be 18 on or before Election Day may register to vote by mail, at the City Clerk's Office or any Secretary of State branch, or at other designated agencies. 

The Michigan Secretary of State's Voter Information Center is an online source for election information. Michigan residents can access information on their voter registration status, preview their ballot, and get directions to their designated polling place. Visitors can access online information on candidates, ballot proposals, and tutorials on the voting equipment used in each community. The Qualified Voter File, the statewide voter registration system developed by the Michigan Department of State, provides data for this site.
 

REGISTERING TO VOTE WITHIN 14 DAYS OF AN ELECTION
With the passage of Proposal 18-3 in 2018, individuals who register to vote fourteen (14) or fewer days before an election and wish to vote in that election must: 1) register to vote in-person at their local Clerk's Office, and 2) provide proof of residency at the time of registration*.

Proof of residency consists of the following documents, which must include name and current address:

- State of Michigan Driver's License or ID

*Note: The proof of residency requirement does not apply to those who register to vote on or before the fifteenth (15th) day preceding an election.
