How to Register

Any Secretary of State branch office or county, city or township clerk’s office can register you. In addition, specified agencies providing services through the Family Independence Agency, the Department of Community Health, the Michigan Jobs Commission and military recruitment centers also provide voter registration services.

Registration Options
You may also register to vote by mail - forms are available at your local clerk’s office or from the Secretary of State website. If you register to vote by mail, and you have moved to a new voting jurisdiction or are registering for the very 1st time, you must vote in person in the 1st election in which you participate. The only exceptions are if you are 60 years old or older, disabled as defined by law or temporarily living overseas.

You also have the option of registering to vote when you renew your driver license by mail. Eligible drivers receive a voter registration application in the mail with their driver license renewal information.

As you can see, there are several options for you to choose from when registering to vote. But no matter where or how you register, you must vote in your assigned precinct in your hometown. Once registered, the next step is to make sure you study the candidates and issues to help make informed choices.
