A Michigan resident who moves and registers out of state may not re-register to vote in Michigan until he or she reestablishes residency here. Whenever you move to a new city or township, you must re-register to vote. If you move within a city or township, you must update your address. This can be handled through your local clerk, at a Secretary of State Branch office, or by mail. Michigan voters must use the same residential address for voter registration and driver license purposes. Consequently, if you submit a driver license address change, it will be applied to your voter registration and a new card will be mailed out. Similarly, if you submit a voter registration address change, a sticker from the Secretary of State will be sent to you to apply to your Driver’s License. Note: If you change your address at the Clerk’s Office (City Hall) it does change your driver’s license record at the Michigan Secretary of State. We strongly encourage you to go to the Michigan Secretary of State to change your address. We receive all information from the Secretary of State on a daily basis. If move to a new address within 30 days of an election, you must vote in the State, City or Township that you previously resided in. If you move to a new location in the City of Adrian this could affect which Precinct you will be required to vote in. Please make sure to re-register to vote when moving to a new state, town, city or township.
For more information, contact your city clerk at 517-264-4866 or 517-264-4833. Hearing-impaired residents may contact the Bureau of Elections at: 517-485-5530 (TTY).
- All states are required to provide voting equipment which permits residents with disabilities to vote a secret ballot without assistance.
- All Michigan polling places are equipped with at least one AutoMARK Voter Assist Terminal.
- The AutoMARK is placed on a table with a privacy hood attached to ensure the secrecy of the ballot.
- The machine is equipped with a touch screen to select your choices.
- The AutoMARK doesn’t count votes; it simply marks the voter’s selections on an optical scan ballot. The ballot then has to be taken to the correct precinct to be tabulated.
- Any voter may use the AutoMARK.
- There is a Keypad with Braille feature available with headphones for privacy for the blind.
