Register to Vote
Visit the Voter Information Center on the Michigan Secretary of State website to locate your voting precinct, preview any upcoming ballot, and review instructions for using the Townships voting equipment.
You must be a resident of the United States and must be at least 18 years of age by election day.
Adults can register to vote at the age of 17-1/2, provided that they will be 18 years old by the date of the election in which they wish to vote. This is especially important for high school seniors going away to college.
You must be a resident of Michigan, live in the township, and be registered to vote. A resident can register, or update their address, with proof of residency, up until 8pm on Election Day.
You may register to vote in the following three ways:
- At the local Clerk’s office - allows applicants to vote by Absentee Ballot in their first election
- At Secretary of State Branch Offices - allows applicants to vote by Absentee Ballot in their first election
- Mail-In Voter Registration - Applicants may register by mail without appearing in person up until 15 days before the election
If you choose to register to vote at our office, we are able to notify the State of your new address at the time of voter registration, provided that you are a current resident of Michigan. The State will send you a new sticker for the back of your license with your new address within 3 to 4 weeks of your registration.
When you go to the Secretary of State to change your address, you are provided the option of registering to vote at that time. The Branch office mails your application to us for actual voter registration. Within 3 to 4 weeks of our receipt of the application, you will receive a new voter ID card in the mail. This card will tell you where you vote for all elections including your school precinct location.
If you move within the Township you may notify us. We will change your address with the State of Michigan Department of Motor Vehicles and on your voter master card. You will receive a new Voter ID card from us and in about 3-4 weeks and a sticker for your drivers license.
If you move to a jurisdiction outside of the Township, you must register in your new community to be able to vote.
