Ann Arbor holds city and school board elections 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 a 30-day resident at your local address. Michigan voters may register to vote by mail at least 15-days prior to an election or in-person at their local clerk's office as late as Election Day.

Those interested in working as an election inspector may fill out an application approximately 60 days before a city election. Applications are available at Inspectors are paid $13/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 or the Republican Party (734) 996-9467.
