Yes, you can vote in Michigan

Even if…

  • You have a Felony Record,

  • You are on Probation, Parole, or tether,

  • You are awaiting arraignment, trial or sentencing

  • Your housing is unstable,

  • You do not have Michigan ID

There are only a few restrictions on voting in Michigan. Voters must be a U.S. citizen, reside in Michigan, at least 18 years old, and not serving a sentence in jail or prison.

Plan Your Vote

Vote Early

Return ballot at a drop box or at your clerks office. Be sure to sign and date the envelope.

If you still have your Absentee Ballot at home do NOT put in in the mail. Drop your ballot off at your city or township clerk’s office, satellite voting location or a drop box provided by your clerk. Be sure to sign and date the envelope.

Note: You can apply for an absentee ballot and vote in the same visit to the clerks office!

Vote on Election Day

If you are NOT registered, you can register to vote and vote at the clerk’s office up until 8 p.m. on Election Day.

If you ARE registered on Election Day, you must vote at the polls (be sure you go to the correct poll!).

Note: If you requested an absentee ballot but didn’t receive it, or changed your mind and want to vote at the polls, you can. (Bringing ID and your ballot if you have it isn’t required but will be helpful.)
