Michigan Law - Voter Picture Identification
Michigan law now requires each voter who appears at their polling location to present an acceptable form of picture identification. A ballot CANNOT be issued unless a voter provides an acceptable form of picture identification or signs an affidavit which affirms the voter is not in possession of an acceptable form of identification and wishes to vote.
Acceptable forms of Identification include:
If you have question in regard to this new Michigan Law, please contact the Clerk's office at 734/394-5120.
Notice Regarding Your Residence Address
Michigan law requires that the same address be used for voter registration and driver license purposes. Therefore, if the residence address you provide on the voter registration form differs from the address shown on a driver license or personal identification card issued by the State of Michigan, the Secretary of State will automatically change your driver license or personal identification card address to match the residence address entered on the voter registration form. If an address change is made, the Secretary of State will mail you an address update sticker for your driver license or personal identification card.
Attention College Students
Under a new State law, the address on your driver's license must match the address on your voter registration record. Any address change submitted on your driver's license will automatically carry over to your Voter Identification Card. This legislation particularly affects college students who often have their voter registration or driver's license changed to match their college address.
Students: please be aware that you can no longer use your college address on one (driver's license) if the other (voter registration) reflects your local residence; the addresses must match.
