To be able to vote, you will first need to register. Learn more below!

Here are the steps you need to take to register to vote in the February 27, 2024 Presidential Primary:

Step 1. Find out if you are registered to vote at the address where you live.

To vote in Michigan, you must be registered at the address where you live. Use either Option 1 or Option 2 to find out if you are registered to vote where you currently live:

 

Option 1. Visit mi.gov/vote and click on “Your voter information.” Enter the following information to see if and where you are registered to vote:

  • Your first and last name

  • The month and year you were born

  • Your ZIP code 

 

(You can also search using your driver’s license number and the month and year you were born.)

 

Option 2. Call your city or township clerk’s office. They can tell you whether and where you are registered to vote.

If you’re already registered to vote where you currently live, you don’t need to do anything else. Just vote when it’s time! If you’re not registered (or if you’re registered at the wrong place), then move to step 2.

Step 2. Register to Vote.

How you register to vote depends on when you register to vote.

 

If it's before February 13, 2024, there are many ways to register to vote in the February 27, 2024 presidential primary.

 

IN PERSON: You can register to vote in person at any of these places:

  • Any Secretary of State branch office.

  • Your city, township, or county clerk’s office.

  • Any state agency that provides public assistance or services to people with disabilities.

  • Any Armed Forces recruitment office.

  • A voter-registration drive.

 

If you have a Michigan driver’s license or state ID card or a Social Security Number, enter those numbers on your voter registration form.  If you don’t have any of those things, you can still register to vote.

 

ONLINE: You can register to vote online at mi.gov/vote. Click on “register to vote online.” You must have a valid Michigan driver’s license or state ID to register online.  

 

BY MAIL: You can print an application, complete it, and mail it in. Get an application online at mi.gov/vote. Click on “Voter forms and publications.”

Starting on February 13, 2024 and up until 8pm on Election Day (February 27), you can still register and vote in the presidential primary. To do this, visit your city or township clerk’s office, complete a registration application, and provide “proof of residency.” 

If you register to vote on or after February 13, ask for a registration receipt. Keep this receipt and bring it with you when you go to vote.

What is "proof of residency"?

“Proof of residency” is a document with both your name and the address where you currently live. You can use:

  • a Michigan driver’s license or state ID card

  • a utility bill

  • a bank statement

  • a paycheck

  • a government check

  • any other government document

If I’m mailing in my application, where and by when do I need to mail it?

Mail your voter registration application to your city or township clerk. To vote in the February 27 presidential primary, your application must be postmarked by February 12, 2024.

How do I find my city or township clerk’s office and the hours it is open?

  1. Visit mi.gov/vote and click on “where are my clerk’s offices.” 

  2. Enter your address to find your city or township clerk. 

  3. Look for the offices’ hours and locations, including satellite locations. Or use the listed phone number to call and ask for their hours and location. 

 

City and township clerks’ offices must be open for at least 8 hours during the weekend of February 24-25 and from 7am to 8pm on Election Day (February 27).

Do I need a photo ID or proof of citizenship to register to vote?

No. But here’s what you do need to register to vote:   

 

If you're registering to vote in person, you will be asked for a photo ID. If you don’t have one, you can sign a simple form (called an affidavit) and then register to vote. If you are registering to vote on or after February 13, you will also need proof of residency.

If you're registering to vote through the mail, and you have a Michigan driver’s license or state ID card or a social security number, enter those numbers on your voter registration application. If you don’t have a Michigan driver’s license, state ID card, or social security number, check the box “I don’t have a valid Michigan-issued driver’s license or Michigan-issued state ID card, or a Social Security number” located under the space for writing in numbers.
