Voter Registration

If you would like to know if you are registered to vote, please visit the Michigan Voter Information Center website. Check your voter registration status.

New City of Northville Residents

You can register to vote at the City Clerk’s Office or any Michigan Secretary of State Branch Office, at certain state agencies or by mail. If you do not return your voter registration form in person, you may be subject to voting restrictions.

When registering to vote in person, you will need to present acceptable photo id or sign an affidavit if you are not in possession of photo id.

 Voter Registration Form

You are qualified to vote if:

  • You are at least 18 years of age on or before the day of the election at which you wish to vote.
  • You are a citizen of the United States.
  • You have been a resident of the State of Michigan and the community for at least 30 days before the election.
  • You have registered to vote on or before the close of registration before the election at which you wish to vote.

Notice Regarding Your Residence Address

Michigan law requires that the same address be used for voter registration and driver license purposes. Therefore, if the residence address you provide on the voter registration form differs from the address shown on a driver license or personal identification card issued by the State of Michigan, the Secretary of State will automatically change your driver license or personal identification card address to match the residence address entered on the voter registration form.

If an address change is made, the Secretary of State will mail you an address update sticker for your driver license or personal identification card.

Photo ID Required to Vote

Michigan law requires each voter to present an acceptable form of picture identification. A ballot cannot be issued unless a voter provides an acceptable form of picture identification or signs an affidavit which affirms the voter is not in possession of an acceptable form of identification and wishes to vote.

College Students

State law requires that the address on your driver's license match the address on your voter registration record. Any address change submitted on your driver's license will automatically carry over to your voter identification card. This legislation particularly affects college students who often have their voter registration or driver's license changed to match their college address.

If you register to vote by mail, the first time that you vote, you must vote in person. You are not eligible to receive an absent voter ballot by mail. This exception does not apply to anyone 60 years of age or older or those in the military or citizens temporarily residing overseas.

Registering to vote BY MAIL includes completing and submitting a voter registration application by mail or by having the application submitted to the Clerk's office by anyone other than you. To avoid this restriction, voters such as college students that will not be in town on Election Day and will need to vote by absent voter ballot are encouraged to register to vote in person at any Michigan Secretary of State Branch Office or at the City Clerk's Office.
