Voting

To vote, simply appear at your assigned polling place on election day. The polls are open from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. All Voter Identification Cards list a precinct number; some provide the polling place location. If you do not receive a Voter Identification Card within three weeks after registering, contact the City Clerk's Office to confirm your registration status.

Photo ID Required to Vote
Michigan election law requires voters to either present picture identification or sign an affidavit if they do not have picture identification beginning November 6, 2007.


Voters can satisfy the picture identification 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 identification as long as they are current:

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