Registration is required under Michigan law to be eligible to vote.
Please see our deadlines at the Registration page.
You can register in person at your Township or City Clerk’s Office with proof of residency in that Township or City up to and including Election Day. If you choose, you can also vote in the clerk’s office. You can also register to vote until 15 days before an election by mail, online, or in person.
An absentee ballot is the same as an in-person ballot that is available to people who are registered to vote and do not choose to go to the polls on election day. In 2018 Michigan law changed to allow absentee voting for any registered voter without stating a reason.
You can apply for an absentee ballot online, by mail, or in person with an absent voter ballot application. Please visit our page at Vote From Home for more information.
The deadline to request an absentee ballot be sent to you in the mail is the Friday preceding election day by 5 p.m., however, it is advised that voters submit their absentee ballot application much earlier than this date to avoid the potential for mailing delays.
Michigan voters can also vote before Election Day through a process called absentee in-person voting at the Clerk’s office and begins 45 days before an election when ballots are required to be available for issuance.
