NEW! REDISTRICTING FOR 2022 (and beyond)

The Michigan Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission (MICRC) approved new district maps in December 2021, which took effect with the August 2022 state primary election.  

Redistricting is the decennial process by which new congressional and state legislative district boundaries are updated following completion of the United States census.  As a result of the 2020 Census, Michigan lost one seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.  This representation change affects all Michigan registered voters.  

Additionally, Kalamazoo County reduced the number of County Commissioners in October 2021 from 11 to nine (9) commissioners.  This changed the City of Portage to now be county Districts 4 and 5.  As part of these updates, City of Portage precinct boundaries were also updated.

New Voter ID Cards

Because of the changes noted above, the City is required to issue every resident a new voter ID card. These arrived at residences in early June.  

Be sure to carefully inspect your new voter ID card upon arrival, as your precinct location may have changed.  

If you receive a voter ID card for someone who does not live at your current address, please write “return to sender” on the card and put it back in the mail to the City Clerk’s Office for follow-up.

Questions regarding your new voter ID card?  Call the Clerk’s Office at 329-4511.
