|Frequently Asked Questions
I’ve moved – where do I vote?
If you have moved within the city and have not changed your registered address, you vote at your old precinct and fill out
a change of address form. You will receive a new voter identification card with your new precinct location.
When you move out of the city, you must register in your
new city or township. If the move was within 60 days of the
election, you are entitled to vote at your old precinct; but you must sign a cancellation form at that time. Also helpful is the Secretary of State's new voter information website: www.michigan.gov/sos
When and where do I register to vote?
You can register to vote at anytime at the City Clerk’s Office, County Clerk’s Office, any Secretary of State branch office, and designated state agency offices.
I registered, why can’t I vote?
To be eligible to vote in an election, you must have
registered at least 30 days prior to that election.
I'm not sure if I am registered , how do I find out?
You can call the City Clerk's Office and they will be happy to check for you. Keep in mind that there is a registration
cut-off date of 30 days prior to an election, so make sure
you give yourself sufficient time to register in case you aren't.
I think I live within the city limits and may possibly be registered in the City but I'm not sure, how do I check this out?
The City Clerk's Office can help you. Even if we find that you do in fact live outside the city limits, there are sources
available to us to research and direct you accordingly.
I've misplaced my Voter Identification Card, am I
able to get a replacement even though I have not moved?
Yes, contact the City Clerk's Office and ask them to verify
that you are currently registered and if you are, ask them to mail you a new Voter Identification Card.
