Michigan law requires that ALL voters show a picture ID. Even if election workers recognize the voter, ID is required. If the voter has no ID, or forgot to bring it to the polls, the voter must sign a brief form stating that they are not in possession of identification, and their votes are included with all others and counted on Election Day.
Picture IDs must be current and must include the person’s photo and name. They do not need to include an address.
Acceptable forms of photo ID are:
Michigan Voter Information Center – An online source for one-stop election information. Access information on your voter registration status, polling place, and voting equipment. You may also view your sample ballot and track your absentee ballot from this site.
