I am a college student, do I have to come home to vote?

No, you don’t! You have two options: (1) If you are living away from Ferndale while attending college, you can register to vote in the city or township where you live, and vote there—even if you only live there for part of the year. (2) If you are registered at a permanent address in Ferndale, you can request an absentee ballot and we can mail your ballot to wherever you are—no matter where that is or why you’re there! Go to the Absentee Voting page for more information.

Where can I register in person?

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.

Where do I mail my voter registration application?

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.
