Voter Registration

Citizen participation in the electoral process is critical to the health of our Democracy.  Do your part: Register and Vote!

Before you can vote in any election, you must register. Once you have registered you may exercise your right to vote, either by appearing at the polls or obtaining an Absentee voter ballot. Here are the procedures for registering to vote and participating in federal, state, county, city & school elections in the State of Michigan.

Registering to Vote
  • To register to vote you must be . . .
  • a U.S. citizen
  • at least 18 years of age by election day
  • A resident of Michigan and the city or township where you are applying to register to vote. (You must be registered to vote at least 30 days before the election, so keep that in mind if you are registering with the intention of voting in an upcoming election.)
Where to Register
You can register to vote for federal, state, county, city and school elections by mail; at your county, or City Clerk’s Office; or by visiting any Michigan Secretary of State Branch Office.  In addition, specified agencies providing services through the Family Independence Agency, the Department of Community Health, and the Department of Career Development offer voter registration services to their clients.  Military recruitment centers also provide voter registration services.

Registering by Mail
Click here to obtain a mail-in voter registration form.  It is a PDF file that you can fill out online, print it, sign and put in the mail (you will not be able to save the file.)  Also you can print the form and fill in the required information and mail (we cannot accept an application without a birth date or a signature.)  If you register by mail, you must vote in person at your assigned precinct the first time you vote, unless you are:

  • disabled as defined by state law
  • 60 years of age or older
  • temporarily residing overseas

Note:  You may also register to vote at the same time you renew your driver’s license by mail.  Eligible drivers receive a voter registration application in the mail with their driver’s license renewal information.

Military Personnel or US Citizens Working or Living Outside the U.S.
If you are temporarily living or working outside the U.S. or in the Military, you may use a Federal Postcard Application (FPCA) form to register.  The FPCA forms are distributed through U.S. Embassies and Military bases or can also be obtained from the Secretary of State’s Website.

It is very important that you sign all applications before mailing.  Please mail any Voter Registration or Federal Application Forms to the City of Adrian, City Clerk, 135 E. Maumee St.,  Adrian Michigan 49221 or fax it to: 517-264-8016 to the attention of the City Clerk.
