Michigan Voter Registration Form – Register to Vote in MI

Updated June 03, 2022

A Michigan voter registration form can be used by residents to vote in upcoming elections. The completed form must be submitted to the city or township clerk at least thirty (30) days in advance of the election day (if a citizen is not registering online). A residential address is required in order to complete the registration process; if the resident has no numerical address, they will need to at least provide a description of their location. To be eligible to register, residents must be at least 18 years of age (on election day), be a US citizen, and not be serving a jail or prison sentence. Once registered, individuals will be required to present a valid photo ID when they go to the polling station to vote.

Step 2 – First, select the appropriate checkboxes to indicate if you are a US citizen and if you will be at least 18 years old on election day. Next, supply your ID number or the last four digits of your SSN. If you do not have any of the requested ID numbers, check the box that indicates this is the case.

Step 3 – In the personal information section of the form, you will need to enter the information listed below.

  • Full name
  • Address
  • Gender
  • Phone number
  • Email
  • Mailing address (if different from residence)

Step 4 – Provide your handwritten signature and the date. If you have previously registered to vote outside of Michigan or under a different name, provide the requested registration information.

Step 5 – Once the form has been completed, you will need to deliver it by mail or by hand to your city or township clerk. If you are sending it by mail and were unable to supply the requested ID number, attach a photocopy of a valid piece of photo ID, a paycheck stub, utility bill, bank statement, or a government document that lists your name and address. If none of these pieces of ID could be supplied, you will have to present an accepted form of ID when you go to vote.
