Voter Registration

Historically, individuals experiencing homelessness and housing insecurity have lower voter turnout. MCAH is working to ensure that Michiganders know that you do not need a permanent residential address or an ID to register to vote or to cast your ballot and that everyone who wants to vote in our elections can do so.

Homeless service providers have a part to play in empowering folks to register to vote. MCAH and the Michigan Department of State has resources available to help you in your efforts.
