Voter Registration

To find out if and where you are registered, click here. Once you have registered to vote, you do not need to re-register for each election unless you move.

Mail-In and Online Voter Registration:

You may register by mail by filling out and mailing in your voter registration form or registering online on the State of Michigan website. To be eligible to vote in any election, you must have mailed your voter registration in more than two weeks before the election. Please read the registration form carefully to ensure that you have everything needed.

In-Person Voter Registration:

You may register in person at any Secretary of State office. To be eligible to vote in any election, registration at the Secretary of State office must occur more than two weeks before the election.

Election Day Voter Registration:

You may register to vote in person at the township office on Election Day. However, to avoid the busyness of Election Day, we recommend you register beforehand. If you are registering within the 14-day period before Election Day or on Election Day, you must provide a valid photo ID with a Marion Township address on it. If your photo ID doesn’t have your Marion Township address on it, please bring along another proof of residency, (like a utility bill or bank statement with your name and a Marion Township address on it).


Michigan has No Reason Absentee Voting. That means any registered voter can choose to vote by Absentee Ballot for any election. Or, registered voters can request to be put on the Permanent Ballot List, which means that they will be mailed a ballot for every election.

Absentee Ballots for Individual Elections:

If you would like to vote by Absentee Ballot for a specific election, please fill out this form. A ballot will be mailed to you. Voted absentee ballots should be mailed back or dropped off. Don’t forget to sign the envelope! Absentee ballots must be returned by 8 pm on Election Day to be counted.

Permanent Ballot List:

If you would like to vote by Absentee Ballot for all elections, you can join the Permanent Ballot List when you apply for an absentee ballot for an upcoming election, whether online, by mail, or in-person. Just check the box next to “automatically send me an absent voter ballot for each future election for which I’m eligible.”

Early Voting:

Registered voters in Michigan may now vote during a 9-day period before each state or federal election. This option is not available before school elections. For more information on Early Voting click here.

Voting in Person on Election Day:

In person voting occurs at the township hall, located at 03735 Marion Center Road. Polls are open from 7am - 8pm on Election Day.
