While the next elections in Michigan are a month away, the deadline to register to vote is tomorrow.
All those who wish to vote on February 25th must be registered to vote by Monday, January 27th. Michigan residents can find out if they are already registered by filling out the online form at the Secretary of State website. However, if one has moved to a new city or township, one must re-register. Also, if one has moved from one residence to another within a city or township, one must update the address. Normally, that happens when the address on a driver's license is changed at the Secretary of State's office.
Those who are not yet registered can obtain applications to register to vote can be obtained at Secretary of State branch office, a local county, city, or township clerk's office, and online at the Secretary of State's website.
According to the Secretary of State, the following State agencies offer voter registration services to their clients: Department of Human Services, the Department of Community Health, and the Department of Career Development. Military recruitment centers also provide voter registration services.
Completed voter registration forms must be mailed or hand-delivered to the local city or township clerk. If one cannot locate the local clerk, mail the completed form to the county clerk, who will forward it.
