Where is my voting precinct?
To find your polling location, please to go the Secretary of State website.
Do I need my voter’s registration card to vote?
Whether you’re voting at the polls or by absentee ballot, all you need is your Driver’s License or State ID. If you do not have either one, you can sign an affidavit stating you are not in possession of a photo ID.
Can I wear a t-shirt or hat promoting my candidate when I go to the polls?
For decades it has been illegal in Michigan to wear anything election-related to the polls. This includes clothing, hats, buttons, or even having things like flags, pamphlets, flyers or stickers. You cannot even display such items within 100 feet of the entrance of a polling place. You will be asked to remove these items before you are able to cast your vote.
I only want to vote for the President. Do I have to fill out the entire ballot?
No, you do not need to complete the entire ballot. It will still be counted if you only vote for certain races (President, Senator, School Board, etc.)
Do I have to vote for the party that I’m registered under?
No. In the November election, you can vote for any candidate, regardless of your declared party affiliation.
