Q: How do I register to vote in Ann Arbor?
A: Submit the Michigan Voter Registration Form. You can fill out the form and we’ll turn it in, mail it in, or turn it in to the City Clerk at 100 N. Fifth Ave. (734) 994-2725. Addresses for other cities are listed on the Voter Registration application.
Q: Do I need to change my address?
A: In Michigan the address on your driver’s license must match the address where you vote. When you register to vote in Ann Arbor you will receive a sticker for your driver’s license with your Ann Arbor address.
Q: What if I’m already registered elsewhere but want to register in Ann Arbor?
A: No problem! Just complete the information under “Previous Address” and check “Yes”. Your past registration will be voided.
Q: What if I’m from out-of-state?
A: You can still register to vote in Michigan! Just leave “Driver’s License” blank, or fill in your home driver’s license number. Michigan has a lot of close races, but if you would like to vote at home, register with your home clerk (make sure your state allows voting your first time by absentee).
Q: What if I want to vote by absentee ballot in Michigan?
A: You must submit a written request to your County Clerk prior to 2:00 P.M. the Saturday before the election and you must return your ballot by 8:00 P.M. on election day. Also, if you are a Michigan resident and you did not register to vote in person, you may not vote for the first time by absentee ballot! You must either vote in an election in person or bring photo ID to your clerk’s office.
