To register in Michigan you must:
- Be a citizen of the United States;
- Be 17.5 at the time of registration and 18 years old by the next election;
- Be a resident of Michigan and at least a 30 day resident of your city or township by Election Day;
- Not be confined in a jail after being convicted and sentenced.
Warning: 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 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 this 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.
