Q: How to help update personal/family/friends'/neighbors' voter files? Encourage your family and friends who have moved within Michigan to update their voter registration. They must initiate this process for themselves. They can do this online at: https://mvic.sos.state.mi.us/Home/RegisterToVote#moved or if they have only moved within the same township, they can go into the township office with proof of new residence (changed driver's license or two bills or government documents mailed to the new residence.)
If someone has moved out of state, they can email (firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com ) or send a letter to the Township office stating they wish to cancel their Michigan Voter Registration with legal signature.
If you have a PO Box because you do not receive mail at your primary residence, you need to let your township clerk/deputy clerk know where to send your mail.
If someone just does not want to EVER vote (due to religious or personal reasons), (s)he must submit in writing/email a request to have his/her MI voter registration cancelled.
It is also very helpful to share a reliable phone number or email in case we need to contact you with time sensitive matters. Email the clerk/deputy clerk, call, or stop in to the office to update your contact information.
