Photo Identification Requirement

Before you can vote on election day, you must provide photo identification. If you don't have acceptable photo identification with you, you can still vote by signing an affidavit stating either of the following:

  • You don't have acceptable photo identification.
  • You have acceptable photo identification, but didn't bring it to the polls.

Permanent Absent Voter List

The City Clerk maintains a list of voters who request an absent voter ballot application be mailed to them for every election held in the City. A change in Michigan Law now allows for "no-reason" absentee voting; that means any registered voted can be placed on the Permanent Absent Voter list, or request an Absentee Ballot without providing a reason for not voting at the polls on election day. Voters who wish to be placed on this list may indicate their request on any regular absent voter ballot application they have received from the City, or fill out the Permanent Absentee Voter List Request Form (PDF) and return it to:
City Clerk
310 Greenwood Street
Grand Ledge MI 48837
