Michigan: Voting at the Polls on Election Day

Poll Hours: 7:00 AM-8:00 PM

    Every Michigan voter who offers to vote in the polls must comply with the requirement by showing picture identification or signing an affidavit attesting that he or she is not in possession of picture identification.

    Do I need to show identification in order to vote?

    • Voters are asked to present an acceptable photo ID such as a Michigan driver's license or identification card. Please note that voters who do not have an acceptable form of ID or failed to bring it with them to the polls still can vote. They simply sign a brief affidavit stating that they're not in possession of a photo ID. Their ballots are included with all others and counted on Election Day.

    The following types of photo ID are acceptable:

    • Michigan Driver's license or state-issued ID card.
    • Driver's license or personal ID card issued by another state.
    • Federal or state government-issued photo ID.
    • U.S. passport.
    • Military identification card with photo.
    • Student identification with photo from a high school or an accredited institution of higher education.
    • Tribal identification card with photo.

    Voters without picture ID:

    • Voters who do not have acceptable picture ID or forgot to bring acceptable picture ID to the polls can vote like any other voter by signing an affidavit.
    • Questions regarding the voter identification requirement can be directed to your local city or township clerk's office.

    Does Michigan allow early voting?

    • No. While some states allow all voters to cast ballots prior to Election Day, Michigan does not have early voting. Of course, qualified Michigan voters can cast absentee ballots prior to Election Day.
