Elections & Voting

How can I register to vote by mail?

A mail-in voter register can be found here. Mail the completed form to the address indicated on the form. If you have never voted in Michigan and register by mail, you must appear in person to vote in the first election in which you wish to participate. This requirement does not apply if you personally hand deliver the form to your county, city or township clerk's office or you are:

  • disabled as defined by state law
  • 60 years of age or older
  • eligible to vote under the Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absent Voting Act

If you have never voted in Michigan and register by mail, you may be subject to an additional identification requirement provided under federal law. The identification requirement can be met by providing your Michigan driver’s license number or last four digits of your social security number on the mail in form or sending a copy of any current and valid photo identification or a copy of a paycheck, government check, utility bill, bank statement or a government document which lists your name and address with the registration form. If you do not fulfill this requirement at the time of registration, you may provide one of the above items at the polls on election day to complete the process.
