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

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.
Change of Address:
If you move within a city or township you must update your address. This can be handled by the Clerk's office or at a Secretary of State Branch Office. Whenever you move to a new city or township or move within your current city or township you must update your voter registration.
