1. Verify your registration

If you know you are registered to vote, scroll down to Step 2. If you’d like to verify your registration, enter your information here and we’ll help you check. If you are not registered, eligible Michigan residents can register to vote in person through Election Day (Tuesday, November 3) at your local clerk’s office.

Your registration status can change

Even if you’ve registered in the past, it’s worthwhile to check again as some factors could have led to your status changing. These include:

  • moving
  • changing your name
  • updating your political party
  • state maintenance on the voter registration files

If you believe this information is incorrect, you can also confirm your registration status at your local election office website and/or report the error to the Election Protection Hotline at 866-OUR-VOTE.

2. Find a place to vote

Important things to keep in mind when voting in Michigan:

  • Polling locations are open until 8 p.m. As long as you are in line to vote by 8 p.m., you have the right to stay in line and cast a ballot.
  • You will be asked to show a photo id when you go to vote. If you don’t have one or forgot to bring it with you, you can still vote. You will sign a brief affidavit stating that you’re not in possession of a photo ID, and your vote will be counted.
  • Stay safe and be prepared for lines. Wear a mask, bring sanitizer and a pen, keep your distance, and bring water and a charged phone. If you have any issues at the polls, call or text Election Protection at 866-OUR-VOTE or 866-687-8683.
  • If you have an absentee ballot, you will need to return it at your town clerk’s office or a designated ballot dropbox by 8 p.m. Follow all instructions on the ballot, including filling in all circles completely and using both the brown and the white envelopes. Be sure to sign and seal the outside of the envelope before returning it.
