Is there a Permanent Absentee Ballot List?

Yes.  If you would like an application for an Absentee Ballot mailed to you approximately 6 weeks prior to the election, please submit a request in writing (email is acceptable), using the AV Perm List Request form (link above), or call (313) 343-2510.  A voter who submits a request will have their name placed on the permanent list; which allows an application to be mailed to you prior to each election

How do I register to Vote in the City of Harper Woods?

Register in person during regular business hours at the City Clerk's Office or register at your local Secretary of State.  The 14th day preceding the election is the deadline for registering to vote other than in person at the Local Clerk's office.  Remember!  If you move, even within Harper Woods, you must re-register at the new address.  A name change also requires re-registration. 

You can verify your voter registration status at the State of Michigan website at: or at the City Clerk's Office.

 Because I registered to vote by mail and have not voted in Michigan before, must I vote in person.  Is there a way I can vote absentee?

Under Michigan law, if you register to vote by mail, you must meet an identification requirement.  You must accurately enter your state issued license or the last four digits of your social security number where requested on the mail-in voter registration form; or send one of the following forms of identification when mailing the mail-in form: a copy of any current and valid photo ID or a copy of a paycheck, government check, utility bill, bank statement or a government document which lists your name and address.
