In order to be eligible to vote, you must be registered at least thirty (30) days prior to Election Day. If you reside within the City of Wixom and are not currently registered to vote in our jurisdiction, you can use one of the following options to register. These options can be used to change your address as well if you are currently registered in Wixom and have moved within the City.
You can register at the City Clerk’s Office or at the office of any County Clerk during normal business hours. (The Wixom City Clerk’s Office is opened Monday - Thursday between the hours of 7:15 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.) You can register at any of the Secretary of State branch offices located throughout the state during normal business hours or at the specified agency for clients receiving services through the Family Independence Agency, the Department of Community Health, Michigan Jobs Commission and some offices of the Commission for the Blind. You can also register to vote at the military recruitment offices for persons enlisting in the armed forces.
You can obtain and complete a Mail-in Voter Registration Application and forward it to the City Clerk’s Office at 49045 Pontiac Trail, Wixom, MI 48393-2567. You can click on the link above (80 KB) and print out the mail-in registration form for this purpose.
Effective: March 27, 2013 State of Michigan SB 810 (PA 523 of 2012) requires in-person voter registration applicants to provide photo identification. If the voter does not present a photo ID, s/he can sign an affidavit. This requirement affects all sources of in-person voter registration transactions, including those processed by Secretary of State branch offices; county, city and township clerk’s offices; and designated voter registration agencies (Department of Community Health, Department of Human Services, Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs, and military recruitment centers.)
Mail-in voter registration applications are not subject to the new ID requirement.
A person who registers to vote by mail is required to vote in person the first time unless they are at least 60 years of age or are handicapped. (This vote-in-person requirement that’s associated with the mail-in registration would not apply if you have previously voted in person in the city or township where you live.)
When your voter registration is entered in the Michigan Qualified Voter File, your address on your Michigan driver’s license will be changed as well.
Additional information on elections and voting is available at the Secretary of State’s web page. This page also contains a guide to voting systems that allows voters to select the voting system in use in their community and view a short video on the use of the system and directions on how to cast a ballot. In the City of Wixom, the M100 voting system is used to tabulate ballots.
