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.
You are qualified to vote if:
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.
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.
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.
