Election Day is coming! It’s not too late to register and vote

November 2, 2022  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

Election Day is quickly approaching, but it’s not too late to register and vote. You can still register to vote in Michigan, including on Election Day, but you must go in person to your local clerk’s office with proof of residency. 

The Ann Arbor City Clerk’s primary office is in City Hall, but there are also two satellite offices on campus for those who live in Ann Arbor.

On Central Campus, check out the Ann Arbor City Clerk’s satellite office at the U-M Museum of Art! The office is open Monday-Thursday from noon-6 p.m. and on Fridays from noon-4 p.m.

On North Campus, visit the new city clerk’s satellite office at the Duderstadt Gallery. The clerk’s staff is there Wednesday-Thursday from noon-6 p.m. and Fridays from noon-4 p.m. You can also explore the voter education materials even when the clerk’s staff isn’t there.

Both of these spaces will feature extended hours in the days leading up to and on Election Day. If you live in Ann Arbor, you can register to vote, update your registration address to Ann Arbor, request an absentee ballot (if you are registered/registering in Ann Arbor), vote your ballot, drop off your absentee ballot (for the city of Ann Arbor only), or just ask questions about voting at any of the three clerk’s offices! 

If you vote absentee, be sure that your ballot is returned to the clerk’s office or in an official ballot dropbox by 8 p.m. on Election Day. Be sure to bring a photo ID when you vote or request your absentee ballot – your MCard will work! If you don’t have a photo ID, you will still be able to vote.
