Why is the Secretary of State asking me if I would like to register with the United States Selective Service System?

Effective Oct. 1, 2010, Michigan law (Public Act 642 of 2006) requires the Secretary of State to offer young men under the age of 26 the opportunity to register with Selective Service when applying for an original driver's license. Registering this way through the Secretary of State is optional. Declining this option does not affect your eligibility to obtain a driver's license. The intent of the law is to provide an additional method for Selective Service registration in addition to traditional methods.
