The Michigan Secretary of State's Voter Information Center is an online source for election information. Michigan residents can access information on their voter registration status, preview their ballot, get directions to their designated polling place, and even apply for an Absent Voter Ballot (if within 75 days of an election). Visitors can access online information on candidates, ballot proposals, and tutorials on the voting equipment used in each community. The Qualified Voter File, the statewide voter registration system developed by the Michigan Department of State, provides data for this site.

With the passage of Proposal 18-3 in 2018, individuals who register to vote fourteen (14) or fewer days before an election and wish to vote in that election must: 1) register to vote in-person at their local Clerk's Office, and 2) provide proof of residency at the time of registration*.

Proof of residency consists of any ONE of the following documents, which must include name and current address:

- State of Michigan Driver's License or ID
- Current utility bill
- Bank Statement
- Paycheck
- Government check
- Other government document

*Note: The proof of residency requirement does not apply to those who register to vote on or before the fifteenth (15th) day preceding an election.
