Voter identification requirement

Notice to Macomb County voters: Voter identification requirement in effect

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

  • (See MCL 168.523 for picture identification requirement.)

No photo identification? You can still vote

Michigan election law anticipated that not all voters will have picture identification. Voters who do not bring picture identification to the polls or do not possess picture identification can vote like any other voter by signing a form.
