Voter Registration

New residents may register to vote at the city offices or at any Secretary of State branch office. Registration is permanent, provided you maintain residency requirements as provided by statute. Voters registered by the 30th day preceding an election are eligible to vote in that election.


A person having the following qualifications may register to vote:

  • Shall be a citizen of the United States
  • Shall not be less than 18 years of age
  • Shall be a resident of the city on or before the 13th day before the election in which they plan to vote

Moving & Name Changes

Moving within the city or a name change requires that you re-register at the city offices or Secretary of State. If you have any questions regarding whether you are qualified to register to vote in the city, please contact the City Clerk at 586-727-7571, or you may check your voter registration and precinct information as well as view sample voting ballots at the Michigan Secretary of State's website.
