When may I register to vote?

Voters may register in person or by mail up to 14 days prior to an election. You may register to vote at the Office of the City Clerk or any Michigan Secretary of State Branch Office. You may also register to vote by mail.

Voters may also register within 14 days of an election, up to and including Election Day, only through the following:

  1. Must be done in person at the Office of the City Clerk, and
  2. Must show proof of residency in addition to proof of identity (or an ID that proves both).

By law, voters must be 30-day residents of a jurisdiction to be qualified to vote in that jurisdiction.
