If you hand-deliver your application, the staff person helping you will take your form and you don’t need to do anything else. If you have never registered to vote in Michigan and choose to mail in your application, you will need to meet an identification requirement. This means you must:
- Enter your driver’s license number or personal identification card number where requested on the form. OR
- Send a copy of ONE of the following forms of identification with your application:
A photocopy of your driver’s license or personal ID card, or
A photocopy of a paycheck stub, utility bill, bank document or government document that lists both your name and your address.
If you have never voted in Michigan and choose to submit the form by mail or through a third party, such as at a voter registration drive, you must appear in person to vote in the first election in which you wish to participate. This requirement does not apply if (1) you personally hand-deliver the form to your county, city or township clerk’s office instead of mailing the form (2) you are 60 years of age or more (3) you are disabled or (4) you are eligible to vote under the Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act.
