Michigan law states that any first time voter who registered by mail must vote in person the first time. If you registered in person you can request an absentee ballot if you will be away at college on the election date.
You can register in person at your county or city clerk's office. You can also register to vote at any Secretary of State branch office.
You can mail the application to the Ferndale City Clerk, 300 E. 9 Mile Road, Ferndale, MI 48220 or to the county clerk's address, which is provided on the application. Applications mailed to the county clerk are forwarded to the Ferndale City Clerk and will take longer to process.
