How can I register to vote by mail?

A mail-in voter registration form can be found on this website. Mail the completed form to the address indicated on the form.

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. If you vote by mail, you may provide a copy of one of the above items with your absent voter ballot application or absent voter ballot.
