To register to vote in Michigan you must be:
•A resident of Michigan and the city or township where you are applying to register to vote for at
least 30 days before Election Day.
•A citizen of the United States of America.
• At least 18 years of age (by Election Day).
• Not serving a sentence in jail or prison.
It’s important to note that a voter may register at age 17.5 years of age. The Qualified Voter File
will place an applicant on the registration list when they turn 18. In addition, it’s very important
to differentiate between a person currently serving a sentence in jail or in prison and a person
with a past criminal conviction who is no longer in jail or prison. There is no voting restriction on
a voter who is no longer in jail or prison.
With the passage of Proposal 18-3, an unregistered elector (or a registered elector who has moved) who
wishes to participate in an upcoming election now has the following options:
• Register to vote in person at a Secretary of State branch office, a designated voter registration

to the election.
• Register to vote during the 14 days prior to the election, including on Election Day, by applying in
person at his or her city or township clerk’s office.
Note: The Secretary of State, county clerk, and designated voter registration agencies are
required to provide notice to individuals who register to vote at their location in the 14 days
prior to Election Day that he or she is not eligible to vote in the next election unless he or she
applies in person at his or her city or township clerk’s office or votes at their last place of
