NEW VOTER RIGHTS
Now ANY citizen can vote early by mail or in person at their convenience and register to vote up to and on Election Day at their local clerk’s office.
All eligible and registered voters in Michigan may request an absentee ballot without providing a reason and vote early. Mail or drop off your ballot application in person at your township clerk’s office given an absentee ballot that you can vote and return to the Clerk’s office on or before election day. Call or email the Township Clerk to be included on a permanent Absent Voter list and automatically receive an application at each election at (269) 764-5139 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Individuals may register to vote up until 8 p.m. on Election Day. If you aren’t registered, or need to update your address, you may do so by appearing in person at your city or township clerk’s office and providing proof of residency.
To register to vote, applicants must be at least 18 years old by Election Day and U.S. citizens. Applicants also must be residents of Michigan and of the city or township in which they wish to register for at least 30 days before Election Day.
