    Voter Registration
    300 Monroe Avenue NW
    Grand Rapids, MI  49503
    You must register at least 30 days before the election.  This gives the clerk time to process the forms and send you a Voter Identification Card.  You must also re-register to vote whenever you move to a new city or township.
    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, by mail, or at any other location where voter registrations are accepted.  Michigan voters must use the same residential address for voter registration and driver's license purposes.  Consequently, if you submit a driver's license address change, it will be applied to your voter's registration.  Similarly, if you submit a voter registration address change, it will be applied to your driver's license.
