Elections

Ann Arbor is holding its final odd-year elections in 2017. Future city elections will be held concurrently with federal, state, county and school board elections on the first Tuesday following the first Monday in November in even-numbered years. Township and village elections are every 4 years to coincide with national presidential elections. For all elections, polls are open 7 a.m.-8 p.m.

You can register to vote at your city or township clerk's office or at a Secretary of State branch office, (for locations, see the Secretary of State listing in this guide). To be eligible to vote, you must be a U.S. citizen and at least 18 on Election Day and must register your local address at least 30 days before the election.

Those interested in working as an election inspector at a city polling place should email the election recruiter at recruiters@a2gov.org approximately 60 days before a city election. Applications are available at a2gov.org/elections. Inspectors are paid $11/hour & up, depending on experience. To serve, you must be registered to vote in the State of Michigan and work well with people.

To help select candidates, each major party has a primary on the day after the first Mon. in Aug. (In many places, including Ann Arbor, one party currently holds most of all offices, so the primary is the election that really matters). For more information, contact the county headquarters of the Democratic Party (734-330-5225, info@washtenawdems.org) or the Republican Party (734-996-9467.

For political parties and other groups active in local government, see Advocacy and Politics in Groups & Clubs.
