I’m a first-time voter. What do I need to know?
If you have never voted in Michigan and register by mail, you must appear in person to vote in the first election in which you wish to participate. This requirement does not apply if:
- You personally hand deliver the mail registration form to your county, city, or township clerk's office instead of mailing the form
- You are 60 years of age or more
- You are disabled
- You are eligible to vote under the Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act
