Voter Registration / Change of Address Application

You may submit your voter registration/change of address application to the Ypsilanti City Clerk's office or any Michigan Secretary of State Branch.

Your driver license address will automatically change when you submit a new address on your voter registration/change of address application.

In order to vote in the next election, you must register at least 30 days beforehand. This gives the clerk time to process the forms and send you a Voter Identification Card. You must also re-register to vote whenever you move to a new city or township.

First-time voters

This requirement does not apply if (1) you personally hand deliver the mail registration 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.

What to Expect When You Get to the Polls



Voters will enter the polling location, fill out an application to vote, and show your photo identification. If you do not have photo identification, you will also fill out an affidavit of identity.

Your name will be found and highlighted in the Electronic Poll Book and List of Voters.

You will be issued a ballot. Instruction will be offered about voting on both sides of the ballot, how to properly mark the ovals, how to receive assistance if you need it, and more.

You will proceed to a voting booth and mark your ballot using the pen provided to you. If you make a mistake, tell the election workers. They will spoil the ballot and issue you another one.

When done marking your ballot, you will proceed to the ballot tabulator. Your ballot stub containing the number will be removed, and you will insert your ballot into the ballot tabulator.

Your ballot will be accepted by the tabulator. You have voted!
