Voter Identification Requirements:
Every Michigan voter who offers to vote at the polls must comply with the requirement by showing picture identification or signing an affidavit attesting that he or she is not in possession of picture identification.  (MCL 168.523)

Voters with picture ID:  Voters can satisfy the ID requirement by showing a Michigan driver's license or a Michigan personal identification card.  Voters who do not possess either document may show any of the following forms of picture ID as long as it is current:

  • Driver's license or personal ID card issued by another state
  • Federal or state government-issued photo identification
  • U.S. passport
  • Military identification card with photo
  • Student identification card with photo from high school or an accredited institution of higher education
  • Tribal identification card with photo

Voters without picture ID: Michigan election law anticipates that not all voters will have picture identification.  Voters who do not have acceptable picture ID or forgot to bring acceptable picture ID to the polls, can vote like any other voter by signing an affidavit.

How do I update my address on my voter registration?
If you are a registered Michigan voter, your voter registration information will be updated automatically when you change your address on your Michigan driver’s license or ID.
If you are updating your address within two weeks of an election, you must visit your local clerk’s office in person if you would like to vote in the election using your new address.
